The carcass also has steel corners braces. The drawers slide in and out without any difficulty. Marked with the M&W logo and name on the bottom drawer and the front panel. This cabinet has had a full working life and been used for hobby purposes for a couple of decades more. It has the the kind of wear and tear you would expect for it's age and usage.There are scuffs, scratches and marks as per the photos. One of the drawer felts is loose and has a scrape and some shrinkage. (See photo) All other felts are good. The handle is made of a leather layer reinforced with a composite layer. The leather is bit dry and has some cracking. The composite layer is good. The handle is sound and strong. This old thing has already lived a life and a half and it looks that way. It is however strong and sound and has at least one more lifetime left in it. It would still serve its original purpose but would also be of interest to collectors, hobbyists, arts and crafts, sewing, haberdashery, model makers etc. The cabinet has an a strong smell of "old polished wood".
This is not unpleasant but please be aware of it. It will be fine in a workshop but some people might not like it in some rooms of the house. The cabinet is 43 x 22 x 29 cm (17 x 8.5 x 11.5 inches) It weighs about 6.7kg (just under 15lbs). OVERSEAS BUYERS: PLEASE PROVIDE A TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR THE COURIER. Please check out my other items.
