25 Sergeant’s Dog Medicine Metal Display Cabinet

Lithographed, metal cabinet from the Polk Miller Company of Richmond, Virginia.  They were and still are the makers of “Sergeant’s Dog Medicines.”  “Sergeant” was the name of Polk Miller’s favorite dog, so he named his medicine line after the dog.  14”x 13”x 7”.  This example shows two orphan puppies cuddled together looking forlorn and sad.  The slogan, printed to their left is, “NO MOTHER TO GUIDE THEM.”  Both sides have the advertising, ”The premier dog medicines for 50 years.”  This cabinet would date to the 1930’s.  The back of the cabinet has two doors, which open up into an interior used to store the medicines.  I would judge the condition as very good to excellent as the only damage is two screw holes on either side of the name, “Sergeant’s.”  This cabinet was obviously mounted on a wall with the image side hidden and the cabinet used for some type of storage.  This action saved the image from damage or fading from light exposure.  Displays great.  These are very scarce.  Based on the few previous sales, I would estimate it at $500-700.
