My wife and I where out Antiquing when my wife called me over to this little beauty. I feel in love with it at first sight. It was mad in the 1940's. Thanks for looking.

What's the assortment of accessories in the top there? Ashtrays, lighters and such?

What a find! Love the rotating shelf. I wouldn't have expected that by just looking at the front. Perfect for piping!

Great find!

This is something I'd buy new if someone was making them. Very niche market, though, so there's probably little to no profit to be had from it.

I guess in the 1940's 4 pipes was enough but it would be neat if it was just a pipe rack.

That a really neat cabinet! I would think someone with some carpentry skills could make a pretty nice one along the same lines.

Nice cabinet Richard! I have one that is very similar to yours. Here is a link to a previous thread where I posted some pics. I thought that the small plates were ashtrays as well, but Monbla suggested that they were most likely intended for drying pipe tobacco. Judging from their size, I am inclined to think he is correct.

Looking at yours, I completely agree. The plates are not ashtrays. However, in the one in this thread I think I can almost make out rests on Richard's.. So they look more like ashtrays to me. Maybe Richard can confirm it?

Very interesting thank you Dutch I have been looking all over the place trying to find ashtrays that looks good and fit s in the small cutouts and the plates does make more since than ashtrays.

Juan, with antiques this old, there is always a high probability that some of the components have been replaced. Especially components that are susceptible to breakage, rust, etc.

Add to that the fact that some antique dealers will try to find a replacement component, to increase the potential value of an item, you have to consider that some of the components may not be original.

I have also found that with some of these vintage collectible pieces, the form follows function mentality was not a primary contributor to the design. When you consider that these pieces were designed to store tobacco, and retain it's moisture, the designs were very poor at achieving that goal. My guess is that visual appeal to the consumer was a primary motivation in the design of some of these pieces.

You are indeed correct the ashtrays did not come with the cabinet I got them at a flea market just trying to find something to fill the pace. Now I know it takes plated I am on a new hunt.
