Here for sale is a stunning antique opticians cabinet complete with test lenses. Inscribed with "American Optical Company" on a small plaque in the lens compartment. The business was incorporated under the name of American Optical Company on Feb 26, 1869. The company’s defined object was “to manufacture and sell spectacles and eyeglasses of gold, silver, steel and plated metals, also rings and thimbles, and such other like articles as said company may from time to time desire to make.”


The top section has doors with original writing in front of a mirrored back. The main lens compartment has a hinged glass door which can stay open. The tray which contains the lens can be fully removed. Below the lens compartment is a shelf to work on. There is a two door cupboard below this for storage.
