Vintage Neslein toolmakers engineer cabinet chest 7 drawer hinged top keys VGC. This is a lovely tool cabinet. Its dimensions are width 20'' 51 cms, depth 9'' 23 cms, height 15 1/2'' 40 cms.
There are seven drawers which run on metal runners with metal inserts in the drawer rebates. The 4 small drawers measure (inside) 8 1/4'' 21 cms x 6 1/2'' 16.5 cms.There is a further deeper drawer depth 5 1/2 cms. There are 2 larger drawers measuring 18'' 46 cms x 6 1/2'', one 1 3/4'' 4.5 cms deep the other 2 7/8'' 7.5 cms deep. The box weighs 12.6 kgs. The box comes with 2 keys, one for the hinged top box, one for the cover.
When the top is closed , to pins are pushed down securing the panel without looking it. In my opinion this box has only been used sparingly for very light items.The felt in the drawers is very good, the undersides of the drawers are very clean. All the drawer knobs are present.
The faults i would describe as slight rust pitting to the catches and corner protectors. I have not tried to clean these, but i would have thought they would clean easily.
The leather strap on the handle has come apart on the top, the metal and lower side of the handle are intact. There are some small nicks and marks to the front panel, but all are small in my opinion. The remainder of the box is very good, with the odd mark or blemish. I have photographed all the sides.
