Antique Oak Ornate Ransom & Randolph CO Dental Dentist Cabinet #40 glass knobs
This is an outstanding rare Ornate oak Dental Cabinet that dates to the early 1900's. Made by Ransom & Randolph Co out of Toledo Ohio, this piece is simply amazing and features 17 drawers,two doors, a slide out tray and two mirrors and ornate carved details along the top.
This piece has been refinished at some point but I believe it has almost all of the original hardware detailed below
The top features 7 swinging oak drawers with original ornate hinges and 7 glass knobs. To the left of this is a swiveling piece that held all of the drills and behind it an area for more storage. To the right is the mirrored beveled door which has the small drawer that has curved slots that looks like a coin drawer. (This is the only drawer that has a knob that appears to not belong. ) And shelves behind it with linoleum. I believe this linoleum may have been added by a dentist in the 1950's. The door also has an area for a key and the locking mechanism is still there but there is no key. You will have to hunt for this one!
As the lower section begins, there is a small pull out tray. It does not pull out very far, but it does pull out all the way. This section also has a linoleum bottom which I am not sure if it is original or not. It most certainly is old and was added before 1950 if it was added.
In addition to the amazing number of drawers, this piece has a locking mechanism activated by one of the drawers at the top. When the one drawer opens, you can access all of the other drawers. Although it was sticking when we first got it, it appears to be working with the exception of two drawers. One is missing it's locking piece and the other needs to be adjusted from what we can tell.
The bottom section features four swivel tray drawers with the original slots to hold all the instruments. This area also has five more drawers, two with slots and one larger drawer. The bottom two drawers are sticking since I received it but I do not know if they were before. It could be a humidity issue since it's now July. The bottom left features a small cupboard area for storage.
In addition, this piece has all four original caster wheels so it is super easy to move!
This is one of the nicest and best priced Dental cabinets available anywhere online at this time. Don't regret letting it slip through your fingers, make us an offer! We have already had several people drooling over it in our store. The women all seem to agree it would be an awesome jewelry cabinet! And we must agree! But it would have great storage function for anything! Plus you'll have a wonderful conversation piece with history!
