About this item

This is a vintage, tall and heavy-duty industrial cabinet from an old Indian typesetting print shop.

The vintage distressed surface finish gives it a strong industrial aesthetic making it a tall and distinctive item in any retro or contemporary interior.

Originally this iron framed cabinet would have been used as a convenient storage rack for the individual metal alphabetic letters used by the Indian printer…hence the 26 slide-out trays – one tray for each letter.

Each tray is sub-divided into small compartments. These would make a great storage for collections. Alternatively to have the orientation of the trays change is easy enough - to suit your storage needs.

Dimensions: W88cm x D39cm x 164cm.

This item is very heavy.

Our cabinets and cupboards are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal.

Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
