Vintage Wood Document Holder Storage Cabinet, 1940's Security Exchange Commission, 72 Drawers

This lovely piece was used at the Security and Exchange Commission to store documents in the 72 drawers. The pulls appear to be bakelite ( I have not tested this) and are attached individually with four precision screws. Each drawer is dovetail joined and each of the four drawer sections is mated to the other with male and female fittings.

Each drawer has a finger hole in the bottom to make document retrieval easy. Two of the drawers are missing pulls and the top has water damage and staining. The top can be repaired / refinished and is removable from the four stacks of drawers. There are very minor blemishes elsewhere on the cabinets reflecting typical wear and tear of a piece of this age. With the exception of the top (veneer) this unit is solid wood throughout with floating panel sides.
