Default 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.
