    Description

    Appropriately Titled the Ages of Woman Dye Cabinet This piece reflects a Victorian view of women along with advertising the Diamond Dyes colors offered here. The colorful front was intended to draw the customer in to select the color of dye while the clerk could access the product from the back of the cabinet. The interior sections have long since been removed, but the cabinet itself is in perfect shape and a typical design of the period. The tin front, showing women from infancy to old age, is bright and colorful in near mint condition with some professionally done restoration in two nickle-size spots, which take a careful eye and a strong touch. The wooden cabinet is 21" wide, 29" tall, and 8" deep. The tin inset panel is 16.25" x 20". The interior still has a company-made sign reading, "To the Dealer," by the Wells & Richardson Company, Burlington, Vermont. This is a tough piece to find in such nice condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
