A fantastic large antique museum collectors cabinet. With ivorine plaque for J.J. Hill and Son Cabinet Works, Yewfield Road Willesden, London NW 10. J.J. Hill were renowned entomological cabinet manufacturers who's cabinets were much used by museums, universities and collectors. Their cabinets date from the Victorian period up to the end of the 1930's. This cabinet comes from the Seale Hayne agricultural college in Devon that was founded in the 1920's. 

The cabinet is beautifully constructed with two doors opening to reveal 17 large drawers each with brass name plate. Heavy brass museum door hinges allow the doors to fold back (not flat against the sides). 

An extremely high quality statement piece that would look fantastic in a shop or home interior or to be used again to store a collection. A useful storage bank of drawers, perfect to add soul and character to any modern space.


Some missing veneer to one edge. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


131 cm width, 60 cm depth, 114 cm height

Drawer internal height 9 cm and 14 cm
