Stunning Dewhurst's Cotton Reel Cabinet (hw498)

This is an extremely rare and unbelievably beautiful example of a Dewhurst Sylko cotton-reel cabinet. It dates to around 1900, possibly slightly earlier, and is in the most exquisite condition, with a lustre and patina to the wood that comes only from generations of care.

The box is made from solid mahogany and adorned with its original stunning gold and black lettering. This features on the top, drawer fronts (together with four Sylko logos) and back. The amazing condition of this lettering makes this cabinet rare indeed as this is nearly always the first thing to suffer from the rigours of shop life and then handling over the years. The patina and grain of the wood is simply superb. The drawers have wooden knobs - three are original but one appears to have been replaced, although not in recent times.

The drawers amazingly have a full compliment of 22 removeable hardwood dividers where the threads would have been sectioned into colours. These dividers are nearly always missing from such cabinets as their use changed over time from that of shop display to household keepsake drawers. The inside of the drawers still carries the telltale signs of light/dark markings where rows and rows of reels sat over many years. Included with the box is a selection of 57 original wooden vintage Dewhurst Sylko cotton reels - enough to provide a very handsome display yet allowing scope to have fun collecting even more!

The drawers measure approximately 21" by 11" and stand 6" high. The condition really is amazing, with the wood being rich in tone and the lettering exquisite. The top of the box has a shake or split (shown in the photos - photo 5 shows it close up) which in no way affects use or detracts from its beauty.

Rarely is such a beautiful Sylko Cabinet to be found in what one could only describe as exhibition quality. This would make an exceptional and prized possession as part of a collection of antique haberdashery.
