12 drawer insect cabinet for sale

A friend has an insect cabinet for sale. Details:

Watkins and Doncaster, 12 drawer Cabinet

All the draws are in excellent condition, air-tight and capable of taking pin sizes up to 30mm long. They will all need re-papering  (old foxed paper) or a new plastazote or similar layer. The carcass is good but the glass door fails to shut properly due to a slight distortion of the base and it will need to be re-hung and a new lock placed.

Watkins and Doncaster have a couple of similar cabinets on their web site (mahogany fronts/pine elsewhere) and they are asking £1000 -£1200. Bob would be looking at half that.

For collection from Ackleton near Bridgnorth, Shropshire.

Contact Bob Kemp at rgkemp@hotmail.co.uk if you are interested.
