This beautiful wooden oak cabinet with tin panel doors in the front and back was used to display Diamond dyes in a general store, with the front colorful panel featuring small children and a large balloon and reads "Diamond Dyes" at the top, and "The Standard Package Dyes of the World" at the base. In the late 19th and early 20th century, packets of dyes were sold in almost every general store in the country, with Diamond Dyes ( by Wells & Richardson Co, Burlington, VT) being one of the biggest and most popular. The frontice of the cabinet was the side exposed to the public, so this would always be the most colorful panel, almost always made of tin. The interior cubbies or shelves would hold powdered dye packets, which, with added to water, one could soak clothes to achieve the desired color. The cabinet is in very good overall condition, with some scattered surface rust dispersed in the imagery, with a couple of scratches and chaff marks on the tin. The back tin is good, with some scattered rust. We are not sure if this is the original wooden surface or if it was refinished at one time, but it is structurally sound, with a small scuff mark on the frame of the front door. Dimensions: 24 ½” h x 15” w x 9” d. A great colorful example of period advertising to add to your country decor!
