INDUSTRIAL MEDICAL DISPLAY 

A true antique industrial medical display cabinet , late 19th century.  Made all in cast iron with beveled glass sides and front door.  It looks almost as a safe , and that might have been the intention, pieces like this were often in hospitals and mental institutions and were used to store drugs under lock. As shown this cabinet has a key-less lock mechanism, very much like a safe kind, the lock is stamped and was patented in 1886 by The Keyless Lock Co, out of Indianapolis.  The mechanism is not working but it could be restored by a professional locksmith, the door does open and close and can be locked in place with the lower latch. Adjustable glass shelves and original steel casters.  This is the first time I have a piece like this one, so it’s a rare one for sure.
