03 Columbia Veterinary Remedies Tin Cabinet Front Panel

This is the lithographed tin panel from a display cabinet that was apparently used by a store owner as a sign, instead of part of a wooden display cabinet from the F. C. Sturtevant Company of Hartford, Connecticut.  This panel has a series of small nail holes around the perimeter that show evidence of having been hung by nails for a long time.  The sign was manufactured by Sentenne & Green of New York.  They were one of the most prominent lithographers at the turn of the Century.  I found them listed online in the 1897-1900 time frame, so we can date this panel from that period.  14”x 21”.  There is scattered rust spots and expected wear, but nothing that really distracts.  It would probably improve with a wash and wax.  I have recorded two cabinets with this panel selling previously.  We sold one in 1997 for $3800 and one sold in a mid-west auction in 2018 for $6500.  I know of one other cabinet example in a collection at this time and one other panel, like this, but in much worst condition That’s it, three cabinets and two free panels from a very desirable company.  What is just the panel worth?  We will see with your high bid.  NO RESERVE.
