PRICE REDUCED! Putting it up on eBay tonight (Sunday 2/18), as well.

Here is something that doesn't turn up too often, a custom-made cylinder cabinet, with room for 165 boxed cylinder records stored and displayed in individual slots behind sliding glass doors.

It came from the estate of a family which had run a California general store that had remained in operation from Gold Rush times until the late 20th century. This cabinet was a custom replacement of the store's original cylinder record sales display, probably done in the 60s or 70s. The family kept it in their home after the store closed as a means of storing their record collection in a quaint and familiar way.

Thus, it's something in an old format but is not that old itself. It's very well made, solid and tight, super convenient, and quite attractive. As you'll see in the photos below, it has 11 columns of 15 round slots sized to perfectly fit standard cylinder records in their boxes. It measures about 44" w x 78" h x 8" (rounded to the nearest inch) so it's something that takes up a pretty good piece of wall but does not poke out into the room very much at all. The two glass sliding doors ride in metal tracks top and bottom, and each has one of those little "handle" indentations cut into it for ease of opening.

It's solid wood (not veneered) and thus is pretty heavy, and so the only way I'll ship it is via whatever blanket-wrap arrangement the buyer can send to our SF area home for pickup...or if the erstwhile and reliable Blais Express is willing and available to take it on for relay to the LA show in August or Union or points between.

Have a look - it's really cool. As usual, the sideways photo syndrome seems to be happening here, so click the shot and it should right itself.
