Here is the back view of the old-time general store display cabinet that we purchased at the small town flea market last weekend. Since it came directly from the flea market,
we didn't have a chance to "work" on it much. The back will have to stay dusty until the future owner has a chance to clean it. The doors don't slide smoothly, due to rusty tracking -- no chance to work on those either.
This beautiful cabinet has lovely white paint, crazed with age -- just like we like it. It was rescued out of the basement of the an old grocery store in Skidmore, Missouri. If you have a chance, you should google Skidmore and see the interesting saga of that little town with a population under 400. It is documented in a book "In Broad Daylight" and a movie. Stranger than fiction.
The three (slightly wavy) mirror back panels are what sold me.
The top piece of glass is original to the piece.
I was looking for a big piece to display things on,
and this behemoth is perfect.
