Description:

This cabinet appears to be made of oak and similar examples have been seen made by Excelsior Showcase Works of Quincy, Illinois and H. Pauk & Sons Mfg. Co. of St. Louis. There are no visible maker's marks on this example. Almost the entire case is made up of large glass panels to view the canes, umbrellas, or walking sticks within, apart from the back which is hardwood. The entire domed glass top lifts on hinges via a brass handle on the front. There are slots to display 70 canes on three tiers for better display, with the upper tray holder a plexiglass replacement. It stands 48 inches tall at the back, is 24 1/4 inches deep, and 24 1/4 inches wide. (Display case only).

Rating Definition:

Very fine overall, retaining all the glass panels and showing some light handling/storage evidence. An excellent way to display various items including antique canes!
