Rare Antique Wabash Cabinet Company Oak File Cabinet | Early 20th Century | Single Drawer on Stand
Discover the rarity of this antique Wabash Cabinet Company oak file cabinet, crafted in the early 20th century. Produced by the esteemed Wabash Cabinet Company of Indiana between 1900 and 1910, this solid oak file cabinet on stand with casters is a true testament to the craftsmanship of the era.
Opening from the top, this cabinet features a metal "non-slip removable compressor" designed to keep files securely in place. The top can be easily removed from the base, as shown in the pictures. The original hardware and casters are intact, adding to its authenticity and charm.
This old piece, much loved throughout its history, exhibits its story through time. Despite its age, it remains completely functional, with the filing apparatus moving smoothly from side to side. Measuring 31" high by 19 3/4" wide by 13 3/4" deep, it offers ample storage space for your files or serves as a unique accent table or stand.
For its age, this file cabinet is in good condition, displaying obvious wear and signs of use that add to its character. The black paint on the iron handles is flaking, and the casters show wear, with one falling out when the cabinet is picked up, but easily put back into place. The side of the base proudly bears the marking, "The Wabash Cabinet Co. - Wabash, Indiana."
This rare find is a true gem and the first single-drawer antique filing cabinet I have personally come across. Its beautiful patina and captivating presence make it a standout accent piece for any space.
