    Beautiful Treadle Cabinets!!

    I have never seen such elaborate cabinets before!! The first two parlour cabinets are so unusual and I also find the first machine extremely interesting! All are from the same seller. Any comments?
    I wish I lived closer and had the extra space!!

    I have the cabinet in the 3rd link, but in bird's eye maple (bought for $15). I just bought a Lotus to go in it. I just love the first 2. I've not seen them before, and now I want one.

    Doe any one know what the age might be for these machines/cabinets? What are the decal patterns called or referred to as in the first one - It is the one with the birds.

    Thanks for sharing - I had never seen cabinets like the first two, they are beautiful. Must have belonged to a wealthy family!

    1890-1915. "Pheasant". Found on 15; 27; 128. The third cabinet is a #5.

    They are beautiful but pricey; I have the parlor cabinet but mine is plain. It needs some parts to be put in working order. I have purchased a beautiful Sphynx to put in it when done. I also have one similar to the third picture but mine is more ornate/detailed than the one he has. I guess I can't post pictures here when "replying".

    Seriously??? That's my favorite cabinet out of the three.

    Here's my bird's eye maple cabinet w/my Lotus 66K. To upload a pic, go to advanced, not quick reply.

    Oh gosh, I just have to jump in here and say that I have the same parlor cabinet that is shown in the 2nd attachment. My machine has the tiffany decals and is in better condition than the one in the pic. I guess it makes my $180 investment look good! I really love how it looks in my living room!!
