Wm. R. Robertson Posted February 7, 2015 Share Posted February 7, 2015 Have you ever heard of these? They would make the perfect tool cabinet in a clean workshop!I just happen to have one, which is on loan to my mother for decades, she keeps some of her sewing things in it. What these are is a dental cabinet in the shape of a house, they made two styles, one like shown and the other with a flat roof. It is said only about 300 were produced in the 1920's. The idea was to sell them to pediatric dentist's so as not to scare little girl patients...... Just imagine a sweet little girl walking back into the exam room and thinks we are going to play house...... Gets gassed and wakes up with a sore mouth. The idea is almost cruel..... But it was the 20's.But just look how cool this would be as a tool chest on stand for your miniature working tools.Here is a link with some more pictures of a model just like mine...... Now days these seem to sell in $3000 to $5000 range.http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/13425776_doll-house-dental-cabinet Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
