This is a rare Hoosier Special Cabinet manufactured in 1908. This early hoosier cabinet would look great in a period home.

Dimensions

Top: 39.75Lx37.5Hx12W
Total: 40.25Lx68Hx28.25W

Noted features and pieces:
- Early piece made using oak wood in a dark oak finish.
- Aluminum pull out work top. Extremely easy to use.
- All original hinges.
- Some of the original brass hardware is included (separate, not installed)
- Flour bin (no sifter)(Original glass viewing window peice in tact)
- Original door mounted sugar bin: (included but not installed. Has both side shelves. Can install for you prior to pickup if you would like)
- Recipe tin holder
- Rolling pin holder (included but not installed. Can install for you prior to pickup)
- Tin bread and cake box/ drawer: in tact. Missing “lid”
- The original slag glass door panes have been replaced with plexiglass. One of the original slag panes and its hardware is included. I was never able to find another that matched the over 100 years old glass.

Even after 116 years, the oak cabinet is still very sturdy and holds a ton of weight. We currently use it as a liquor cabinet/bar/ kitchen storage/etc. and it has zero issues with the weight. Previous owner patched the “weak” spots in the wood. Only changes we made included adding knobs, since it had only a few on it when we purchased it, and the plexiglass.

The Hoosier kitchen cabinet first appeared in the market in 1898, when a furniture company going by the name “Sellers” produced it in New Castle, Indiana.
Original ads describe the Hoosier as “reliable, durable, converient and will last a life-time” and it truly has lasted a lifetime.
