DIAMOND DYES CABINET "THE BABY" CIRCA 1890'S. This is one of the earliest cabinets distributed by The Wells & Richardson Co. of Burlington, VT.U.S.A. and Montreal, Canada. Cabinet measures 20" in height X 16 1/2" in width with a 8 1/2" depth. These colorful point of sale cabinets sat on the counters of general stores. Back doors opened for merchant to dispense different colors of dyes used in that time to dye fabric.. The baby is a hard to find cabinet in this condition and I've only owned one better in almost 40 years. There is a rub/ scratch on the babies right shoulder and two more lesser ones on the colored feathers that you can only see if you hold cabinet on an angle. Colors are strong and bright. This is a very thick paint and paint is finely crackled. There is a tiny chip in the paint near top center edge. very minor. If you collect country store advertising you will be hard pressed to find a better example. Inside has been painted white and most of the dividers are missing. All said, it's a great example of a scarce cabinet.
VICTORIAN CAST IRON PLANTER. Circa 1900. Measures 53" in height to top of handles, 39" in width X 27" in depth. Beautiful ornate handles. This planter has a more traditional base and comes in 3 pieces. Casting appears to be perfect. We do not see any breaks, cracks or missing pieces of any kind. We have a second planter from the same source but they are not a matched pair.
