Some would classify this as antique. The exterior is protected with up to 15 layers of hand-applied polyurethane.It was made for the. 90 to 100 years ago. This is a perfect example of mid-early 20. The wood-craftsmen in that era did not have the tools that are available now so they had to rely on skills that are lost on woodworkers today. The result, there were no shortcuts and anything less than perfection was not acceptable. This chest would look great in a den with wooden walls or on the mantel of a stone or brick fireplace. The custom-built interior is designed to safely store and display your valuable collection. It boasts a furniture grade faux suede material and the medallion in the padded interior cover is a semi-precious gemstone. This case is heirloom quality and was built to last for generations.
If you are looking for a special case that is as distinctive as your collection - you have found it. This beautifully finished attractive piece of furniture would be a handsome addition to any Office, Den, Living Room, Study, etc. And would make a great gift for your favorite collector. I could not find a quality, attractive and functional pen chest at an affordable price so I make my own.
Most of my cases are made from 30 to 100-year-old vintage and antique silverware storage chests. My goal is to offer some of the best cases available. I do that by controlling every step of the rebuilding process and doing all the work by hand. My standards are very high, so as a result, I offer a product of superior workmanship, unmatched quality and value and is designed to safely store your collection.
What distinguishes my cases from all the others? Custom Built Interior, Semi-precious Gemstone Medallion, Hand Finished Exterior, Superior Craftsmanship, Refined Features, Aesthetic Appeal, Heirloom Quality.These are all features you will not find in storage/display cases that sell for much more and all of my creations are one-of-a-kind. I have custom built cases for storage and display of mechanical pencils, watches, knife collections, pocket watches, and for storage of jewelry and small parts, etc. Please let me know if you have specific needs in a storage / display case. I will research, recommend, design and custom build a chest to your specs as long as it is within my areas of expertise. Below are just a few of the feedback responses I have received.
My pen chest just arrived this evening. I'm a so pleased and wowed by your attention to detail and craftsmanship! I shall leave you a raving review.The packing was better than I've ever seen, ever in my whole life. Holy smokes, you have a very, very pleased customer here. You are a true artist. Good morning Larry Just to say that the pen storage chest arrived yesterday and is absolutely excellent. You must have put many hours of effort into bringing it to this condition and your craftsmanship is well rewarded.
It will just about cover my immediate need but I may well have to contact you in the future if the collection hopefully! Many thanks and kind regards.
Good Afternoon, Larry: The chest arrived today. It is beautiful, a work of art! It is beyond my expectations! You, sir, are not only a craftsman, but a master craftsman of the old, old school. There are very few people like you.
This belongs in a museum and when I pass, it will be willed to a museum as an outstanding example of master restoration. Your name as the craftsman will be permanent mounted in the chest.I will proudly display it and when it goes on display, in a month or so when I have time to take my pens out of storage, I will send you a photo. Use me as a reference in any way that you want.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul! I'll be following your auctions in the future, as I need a few more cases, and hopefully you'll be listing some that hold more pens.
Dear Sheltered-Pen, I received the storage case in excellent condition. Your care in packaging the item is very much appreciated. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. I sincerely hope for your continued success in your endeavors:.
I'm a repeat customer d6 This piece is even more beautiful in person! A+++ g-0 Larry is truly an amazing craftsman.
Ak Absolutely beautiful and quality work. Truly a piece to keep forever. Wonderful job restoring this chest, great packaging to keep it safe.Came a long way to Australia with Incredible packaging. Wa It is really beautiful and bigger than I thought it would be. And Exactly What I Was Looking For. I start with silverware storage cases. First, I take the case apart and remove all the interior materials. Then I strip the exterior of any decades old varnish, paint or stain and sand it by hand down to new wood to prepare it for staining. The stains and methods I use enhance the grains and the exterior is protected with at least 15 coats of hand-applied polyurethane. The case is then re-assembled. Because chests come in many sizes the interior is completely custom built by hand. The fabric is ultra-soft faux suede and the medallion is a semi-precious gemstone.
