Vintage Art Deco Styled Barbershop Cabinet

Vintage art deco styled barbershop antiseptic sterilizer storage cabinet made by the Paidar company, from somewhere between the 1920s-40s. Table or countertop cabinet, designed to store barbering supplies.

This is a very cool and unique piece, picked up from a local collection in Virginia. I have searched and searched online and have been unable to find another one like it.

This cabinet will make a perfect addition and storage piece for nearly any room in your house. Perfect storage for your vintage bathroom, great for additional storage on top of a dresser or in the living room. Not to mention a great piece for any vintage inspired barbershop.

The original finish was kept to preserve the nice well worn patina. Main cabinet is a light honey-colored finish, top is in original black paint. Nice brass original hinges, original pulls and glass are all intact and in perfect working order. Maltese cross and lettering on the glass are what we really make the piece standout.

Size: 28″w x 10″deep x 8.5″h

The other one is Koken Barber’s Supply Company with headquarters in St. Louis Missouri. Paidar provided a bunch of other barber supplies as well, including barber poles, mirror cases, wall fixtures, work cabinets, manicure tables, shoe shining stands and coat racks.

Industrial Coffee Table / Repurposed Wooden Tool Chest

29 Feb

Vintage carpenter’s tool chest, repurposed as a very unique coffee table. This is a very well built, heavy wooden tool chest, probably dating back to the 1940s. This was a recent estate sale find and it’s completely original. Has tons of character and very nice patina. Color is a very dark hunter green – almost black. Has all original heavy steel handles, as well as original lock and key. Lock is not functioning, but the skeleton key is still with it. The top opens up plenty of storage space. Inside is a shelf and a wooden pull out tray.

Dimensions: 36″w x 20″d x 16″h
