Vintage Two Door Sylko Haberdashery Advertising Cabinet
A rare and and rather wonderful SYLKO cotton reel shop cabinet, dating from the 1930s-1940s. This oak cabinet has two glass lift-up doors with chrome handles to the front and a full length back door with chrome clasp. The cabinet contains 14 painted metal shelves for cotton reels, which can be removed from the back of the unit. It’s the decals on this item which really make it stand out as an unusual and eclectic piece of vintage retail cabinetry, with large SYLKO logos on each side of the piece, as well gold lettering to the front. These vintage haberdashery cabinets are becoming increasingly collectable and can be a real statement piece for any showroom, workshop or home.
This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. This item is in fair-good, used vintage condition. It arrived to us with some heavy woodworm damage on the bottom half of each side of the piece, although this was historic. As a precautionary measure, the whole unit has been treated for woodworm, and the affected areas have also been given a treatment of wood hardener to give it further strength and stability. Finally the holes have been filled and the sides revarnished. The decals are is very good condition for a piece of this type. The metals trays originally meant for rolling cotton reels are in good order and slide is and out from the back with ease. You may choose to remove these if repurposing this cabinet for the home. Please see the photographs for a full sense of the condition of this piece.
