05 Columbia Veterinary Remedies Tin Front Display Cabinet

Wooden cabinet with embossed tin panel insert from the F. C. Sturtevant Company of Hartford, Connecticut.  They named their line of Stock medicine “Columbia Veterinary Remedies.”  This style tin is one of three variations the company manufactured over the years.  This is considered the second oldest variation. Since the medicines listed on the front are “Remedies,” this style tin dates to c1910.  29”x 21 ½”x 10”.  There are three interior shelves and a working lock with key.  The knob is a modern addition.  The door panel is secured in the door with a wooden panel nailed to the inside of the door therefore securing the panel in place.  I doubt this was original to the cabinet and it is possible that this is a marriage.  However, the tin fits perfectly in the door, displays well, and is of the same construction as the only previous example I have ever sold.  That was all the way back in 1997.  Tin has staining, a few scratches, and general wear as you can see.  An extremely scarce cabinet from a very desirable company to collect.  So few Sturtevant cabinets have come to market that it is just a guess to estimate.  My guess would be $2000-4000.  Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional photos on this or any of the other cabinets in this sale.
