This factory store display cabinet is a restoration of an original that was manufactured by Winchester in the early 1900s to aid Winchester dealers in displaying their Winchester long guns. A J.W. Winchester Co. marked plaque is present on the floor plate. It is constructed of hardwood, possibly oak, with full length glass panels and a cathedral top with glass panels. It stands approximately 73 inches in height on four legs with brass sheathed feet, and each side is approximately 18 inches wide. The inside display height is approximately 45 inches. On the inside is a four sided rack that will hold 20 long guns. All four sides are 5/8 inch thick and are marked "WINCHESTER" in white and black bordered red letters with black lettered "PATENT APPLIED FOR" on a white background below. The bottom of the case and the inner edge of the rack is lined with green felt.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as professionally restored with a few minor storage and handling marks. The J.W. Winchester plaque shows an attractive aged patina. The painted Winchester logo retains it's vivid colors. The felt at the bottom of the cabinet is likewise a bright color. This interesting piece would make an incredible addition to any Winchester collection display.
