Antique Oak 15 Drawer Library Card Catalog
This item is one of several I will be listing over them coming few weeks which are being sold for a local 150+ year old library in Boston. These items have been used in the library for decades, most of them have been in the library since they were new. There are some great piece of library equipment and Victorian-era pieces. Please keep looking back to see what piece turn up next.
This is a great card catalog. It has a nice, moduclar design so that the base, drawer unit, and top are all separate pieces, like a barrister bookcase. I am not sure who the maker is, as the manufacturer's name plate is missing. There's is wear from the years of use, but the piece is solid and sturdy. 37" high, 33" wide, 17 3/8" deep.

Our reserve price and Buy It Now philosophy
We rarely use either of these functions except in the unusual instances where we're selling something truly rare or significant. We set our Buy It Now prices to reflect a premium value above the typical value of similar items. In those rare circumstances, we will also institute a reserve price for those given items to ensure that the opening offer will not negate the Buy It Now opportunity. Please be aware, though, that when we utilize the Buy It Now function, our reserve price will be significantly lower than the Buy It Now and reflect a very reasonable and attainable purchase price. Please offer confidently that our reserves are not anywhere near the Buy It Now, and that the Buy It Now simply represents the premium you must pay if you wish our sale to be ended early in your favor. We do not disclose our reserve prices.
