14 Humphreys Veterinary Specifics Embossed Horse Display Cabinet

Original wooden cabinet c1900 from the Humphreys’ Homeopathic Medicine Company of New York.  The cabinet is 21”x 28”x 9”. It has both of its original doors.  This style cabinet opened from the front or back and each door has its original hook and eye closure.  The front panel is made from a composite paper material.  It was pressed into a mold, under pressure, to produce the raised image of the horse and the wording seen on the panel.  The background of the panel was painted black with red applied to the top of the lettering.  Traces of the original red on the letters survives.  Traces of the gold that was on the horse head remains also.  The circle around the horse head retains much of its original silver paint wash.  The front panel is in excellent condition with just the most minimal wear.  It is very hard to find one of these cabinets that retains ANY original paint.  A very nice example overall.  The opening bid here is $1000 with no further reserve.
