Gun Cabinet

This high quality solid mahogany gun cabinet, made by Doten-Dunton Desk Co. (a premier office furniture manufacturer from Boston, Mass.) was made in the late 1800's. It has been painstakingly restored to its original beauty, using Special Walnut stain, enhancing the beauty of the mahogany in warm brown tones. Dental molding adorns the crown around the top of the gun cabinet. This gun cabinet is a two-piece unit with original sliding glass doors top and bottom. The cabinets overall height is 86-1/2 inches, the width is forty-eight inches. The top section is 59 inches tall, the base is 27-1/2 inches high, with a 17-1/2 inches in depth.

The original brass locks are intact and work with keys included. The top unit has six ammo drawers with original recessed brass ring pulls. The drawers measure nin inches wie by seven and one-half inches deep each. Each ammunition drawer bottom was branded ( thermographed ) without the use of ink or print on. This mark includes "makers name, roll top desk, two office chairs". See photo of drawer bottom and dovetailing detail photo.

The left top section is for rifle display. Each rifle butt rests in its own felt-covered slot.
