1922 Hoosier Beauty Cabinet

This Hoosier Beauty from 1922 is astounding original and comes with a full complement of spice jars (with, at the moment, their old spices still in them) and salt/coffee/tea containers. The only replacement parts are the door charts (though the remains of the center one are still extant).

When Bob (the Hoosier Man) received this Hoosier, its original finish was quite grimy and so he lightly sanded and then top-coated with new varnish. The result is gorgeous and authentic. It glows!

All the hardware is original, it has two lidded drawers in the base, a pull-out sugar bin and top-load flour sifter, and side-rolling doors.

Wonderful, right?

The base has two pull-out shelves.
