Description:

This factory store display cabinet was manufactured in the early 1900s to aid Winchester dealers in displaying their Winchester long guns. There is a brass "Walrus Mfg. Co. Decatur, ILL." manufacturer plaque attached to the bottom. It is constructed of oak, with full length glass panels and a cathedral top with glass panels. The top frame of door is stamped with "25", which was the original identifier assigned to these types of cabinets. It stands approximately 73 inches in height on four legs with the typical brass feet sheathes present, 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 original green felt.

Rating Definition:

Fine, showing minimal storage and handling marks overall and some moderate crazing of the refinished varnish throughout, and some mild fading of the labels. A desirable cabinet that would add a new dimension to displaying a fine Winchester collection!
