Oh, what a great find this is! Discovered just last week here in the heart of farm country is this fantastic early old six drawer spice cabinet in amazing condition for it's age.
This wonderful antique oak stenciled spice cabinet has stamped into the back: "From ~ The Pure Food Co. ~ 222 Main Street ~ Cincinnati, Ohio". The Pure Food Company was in business in Cincinnati in the late 1890’s as a mail order business and also served the retail trade. This cabinet was a premium or mail order item available with a spice purchase.
This cabinet is suitable for hanging on your wall, sitting on counter top, or on a cupboard's shelf. All of the porcelain knobs are original to the piece. The cabinet measures 12 3/8" tall, 8 1/4" wide, and 4 1/2" deep. A few of the drawers have some very slight, thin slivers of wood missing from the tops, just from honest wear and use, but nothing to detract from the sweet country charm of this farmhouse kitchen cabinet. I see no other issues on this 124 year old cabinet.
The small size of this old cabinet makes it one of the best for display ~ especially with the lovely, rich patina. The knobs are awesome too. Many times you will see replacement knobs on these antique spice cabinets, but these knobs are the real deal, crackled with age, although in great sturdy condition.
You just don't see these beautiful pieces anymore in this fine condition! A fabulous country kitchen primitive cabinet!
