Tambour Gramophone Cabinet

DESCRIPTION
The gramaphone cabinet has a tambour shutter with near perfect working mechanism. There is a brass drop handle and an old lock which is essential to its proper functioning as this ensures that the shutter stays up when locked. There is a small recess in the top panel which can be fitted with a leather top and place the gramophone/ turntable. There are two removable hardwood shelves used to hold the records. Besides being restored to function as a gramophone cabinet, this can be used for crockery storage or a hallway piece.

DIMENSIONS
18" x 15.5" x 36" [ W x D x H ]

RESTORATION
A new key has been fabricated for the old lock. The piece will be thoroughly cleaned and a single coat of dark polish with clear wax should be sufficient. A piece of leather will be fitted on the top panel recess. The delivery time for 'As is' piece is 2-3 weeks and 'Restored' piece is 4-6 weeks.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT
A tambour door can be an up-and-over or side closing-opening door, which can consist of narrow or wider horizontal slats and "rolls" up and down, or to the side, by sliding along vertical or horizontal tracks.
