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. There are four wooden caster wheels on the bottom. The entire domed top lifts on hinges via a replacement floral motif brass handle on the front. There are slots to display 48 canes on six tiers for better display. It stands 48 inches tall at the back, is 17 3/4 inches deep, and 23 1/2 inches wide. (Display case only).

Rating Definition:

Fine, the restored wood showing some light handling/storage wear and some minor handling marks scattered throughout with a layer of sanded, refinished varnish on the wood overall. The door handle and hinges are a period replacement. A desirable period cabinet for displaying many different types of collections!
