J. & P. Coats Reproduction Thread Spool Cabinet
Note: December 3, we have been flooded with orders for this very popular chest to the point we cannot promise delivery of new orders before Christmas. Our Amish shop will do there best to get new orders out as soon as they can but they may be in late January.
This is our reproduction of the famous classic J & P Coats thread spool cabinets used in the general dry goods stores during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Sewing thread and sewing notions would be displayed in these beautiful counter top cabinets. The cabinets were made in furniture factories using the same mortise-tenon and reverse side panel construction of furniture made during that time period.
Thread companies would provide these cabinets mostly for free to stores who sold their threads and sewing items. Traveling salesmen would make frequent visits to restock the cabinets.
This reproduction cabinet is a Cottage Craft Works exclusive design. It was actually built as a prototype by Paul Stevens and then sent to one of our Amish craftsmen to make exclusively for us.
We sell this spool cabinet finished in Cherry, Walnut, Quarter Sawed Oak or Oak. (Oak is pictured). We also sell the cabinet in a complete kit. The Dark Oak pictured utilizes St. Michaels Cherry Stain a very popular stain color used on Amish furniture, custom stain colors are available upon request. Select custom stain option by clicking here to see our stain chart. Please note the stain color in the comment section upon checkout.
The spool cabinet is priced in Oak, select Quarter Sawed Oak, Walnut or Cherry to see the incremental price differences. Most all of the original cabinets were made from Oak or Walnut.
The cabinet is Amish handcrafted from 3/4" and 1/2" premium hardwoods. There is absolutely no particle or press board used in these cabinets. The inside of the cabinet shows the attention to the detail of craftsmanship as much as the beautiful outside.
The sides are reverse panel, and the inside drawer rail construction duplicates the furniture designs used during these periods. Reverse panels add character and charm to the cabinet. They are very labor intensive, most furniture builders will just use a veneer plywood flat panel or one recessed panel. These cabinets are built to become tomorrow’s family antique heirlooms.
Our unique design has the thread decals actually inset into the drawer fronts and covered with Plexiglas to create a framed look. This provides a rich pop against the wood drawer front and is just another attention to detail this beautiful custom spool cabinet provides.
The spool cabinet measures 23-1/2 wide X 17” Deep X 19-1/2 Tall. The cabinet is custom sized to make a perfect end or side table. The size also allows us to ship these UPS.
Five drawers with an inside space of 19” Wide X 14” Deep X 2-3/8 Tall makes an ideal cabinet to store magazines, hobby, collections and craft items out of the way when company comes a calling, or use it in a sewing room to recreate a bit of nostalgia.
Drawers are finished inside as a normal furniture drawer for general storage items or add your own fabric or felt depending on what your hobby or craft needs are.
The cabinet comes standard with white Porcelain knobs as pictured. If you wish to have different knobs you may select to have the cabinet shipped without the knobs, and add your own. Selecting this option below will discount the cost $15. The holes will be drilled, but will require longer screws than the standard door knobs made for a 3/4" drawer. The cabinet will require 1-1/2" screws to fit your knobs available at home and hardware stores.
Each cabinet or kit is custom hand crafted per each order. Please expect between three-four weeks for oak and between four-six weeks for quarter sawed oak, walnut or cherry before your cabinet will be shipped.
We are pleased to bring you such an exceptional piece of Amish custom made furniture for a very reasonable price.
