My new treasure: A rare Lyon kitchen cabinets salesman’s sample kit. Why rare? Because the little pieces are made of heavy duty metal (pot metal? aluminum?) — not plastic, as we normally see in other sets from Republic (see my exquisite set here), Geneva (we spotlighted a set here), etc. Take a look at my video – this set is an oldie! *soproud* it’s now mine. Note: This video features the song Acoustic Meditation by Jason Shaw is licensed under a Attribution 3.0 United States License. Thanks, Jason!Seriously, I have quite the historical collection of ephemera covering all 80+ brands of vintage metal cabinets amassing.
Some photos, nom nom:
Above: The mystery piece. As reader Rosemary suggested in comments, yes, perhaps it is the top / back / corner of a banquette… but the rest of the pieces are missing. I’ve already put the kit away. But as soon as I can I’ll get it back out and assess the sizing to guess if this is a possibility. Thanks, Rosemary, for the idea!
