RARE EARLY 20TH CENTURY OAK MEDICAL / PHYSICIANS CABINET W/ ACANTHUS CARVED & MIRRORED CREST BY FRANK BETZ CO. -CHICAGO
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We're delighted to offer for sale this wonderful early 20th century oak physicians / medical cabinet. We acquired this recently from a lovely Greenwich, CT estate where it housed one of the most significant medical collections we've had the pleasure of seeing in quite some time. Unfortunately the owner was not prepared to part with the impressive collection but we're still happy for the rare medical cabinet.
This cabinet was manufactured by the Frank S Betz co. of Chicago, IL.
Frank Betz co. Began in the early 20th century in Hammond, Indiana humbly stating "This company was started in a coal shed 19 years ago" in an early advert. "We manufacture or import everything that the physician needs for his office or the largest equipment for the modern hospital." The firm was so successful subsequent sales offices were opened in Chicago and New York City. Betzco offered everything from electro-therapy kits to cutting edge cabinetry such as this. This cabinet has three molded drawers decorated with original floral pulls. The large central door retains it's original brass escutcheon plate and key. The sidelights are a nice feature complimenting the recessed panel sides. The cabinet has three cut glass interior shelves with the brass Betz co. label centered on the door. The gallery sets this piece right off the charts. This has very handsome crisp acanthus carvings and a beveled center mirror. This cabinet measures 24" wide x 14 1/4" deep x a generous 66 1/2" tall. This cabinet represents one of the finest examples of physicians cabinets being offered on the market.
