Please be sure to carefully view all photos and read the written description below. I make every effort to accurately describe the item, defects and all, via both the written description and photos. The photos are to be considered part of the description. The answers to most questions can be found in the listing but I am happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Massachusetts residents must pay sales tax unless a valid resale number is provided. I do not charge packing or handling fees. The shipping you pay is what the U. S. Postal Service or UPS charge for the packed size and weight of the item. Go to “shipping” above and click on “see details” to find the shipping options available for this item. Please note that not all items can be packed together safely or for a lower shipping cost but I am happy to combine items for shipping when possible. Thank you.Delightful antique make-do wall cupboard with eleven little cubbies to fill with your favorite small collectables. It was crafted in the early 20th Century using an explosives shipping box with machine cut dovetails. The dividers were likely added along with facings on the bottom three rows of cubbies to prevent the contents from falling out. Barely visible hand written lettering in pencil at the fronts of two of the cubbies that read, “extra dies”, “spare parts”… this cubby was likely used in a shop to hold small parts. It measures 12″ wide, 6 1/2″ deep or front to back and it stands 17 1/2” tall. It is structurally sound. Surface wear throughout. One of the boards on the backing has old signs of wood worm damage but no indications of anything new, active or current. There are holes in the backing at the top that were used to hang this piece. A fun antique primitive piece waiting to be filled with prized small collectables. No reserve. A*PLEASE READ* This auction is the sole property of yankeei and any unauthorized reproduction of either the listed item or written text contained within the listing is prohibited. No international bidders please. I ship to the United States only. I make every effort to respond to all questions and am on the computer many times during the course of any given day. Because all my listings end during the evening hours, I am often not on the computer during the last several hours of an auction so please ask questions early. I am happy to combine multiple purchases in one box whenever possible, and safe to do so, in order to save you money on shipping costs. If you have won an item and are planning to bid on another, please let me know before I pack up your first purchase and send an invoice. Buyer pays shipping. I ship items either via the US Postal Service or UPS Ground. If you are unhappy with the shipping charges you paid, it is more appropriate to register your displeasure with either the US Postal Service or UPS, (not the ebay feedback rating system), since they are the ones who set the rates I charge you. Payment must be received within 5 days. Please take a moment to view my other listings of antiques, mostly primitives, and items in hard to find and most coveted old paint. Thanks for looking. A note about AAFA: AAFA stands for Antique Americana & Folk Art. I am pleased to be among a select group of invited Ebay sellers who specialize in the sale of antiques, primitives and folk art. Not all of the items I sell meet the AAFA criteria, so be assured that I will apply the AAFA tag only when it is appropriate to do so. When you see AAFA in an item title, it should mean that the item is a true unenhanced antique and not a “vintage”, altered, or newly crafted piece. There are some unauthorized ebay sellers who are applying the AAFA banner without permission to items that do not meet our criteria. I see this on a daily basis despite polite reminders from authorized sellers. Reproductions, even good ones, have NO PLACE under an AAFA listing, Sellers who do this are trying to capitalize on a reputation and client base that we have attempted to build over the past 4 years. Before bidding on an “AAFA” item, please read the seller’s description carefully, (be wary of wording like, “AAFA Like”, “Antique Like” or “antique style“), and review their feedback. We are working to challenge any false use of “AAFA”.
