Technical specifications, photos and description:
For auction is neat old antique watch makers cabinet that was probably hand made by the watch maker. It has an ingenious locking system that has been disabled. When the lid of the top compartment is closed, it pushes down bar that hooked on to each drawer to prevent them from opening. when the lid is opened, spring in the bottom drawer space pushes the bar up to allow the drawers to slide in and out. don't think it would take much to make this feature functional. The lock for the top compartment is still present but there is no key. The top lid has split that was repaired many years ago and dark stain on the surface.The integrity of the lid has not been compromised. There are several small screw holes on the front where hasp was installed at some point. The sides of the chest are raised panel and the side handles and drawer pulls are brass. It measures 19 3/4" in length, 13 in width, and 10 1/2" tall. It would make dynamite jewelry box.
