I like high quality salesman samples and this is one I have never seen before. A Van Cleve Glass Co. Salesman Sample country store showcase. A miniature glass display case with marble trim around the front and sides and mirrored sliding oak doors along the back. The mirrors within are showing crazing and discoloration while the glass remains free from cracks. The connecting fasteners are nickel plated. I have elected to not replace the original door mirrors although that could be done. Two vertical cracks are seen in the marble front but the piece is quite stable and solid. Retaining a celluloid label showing a patent date of June 12, 1900, and marked "Made by The Van Cleve Glass Co. of Cleveland, Ohio." I would say the condition is very good and would be a nice addition to your home or office. Dimensions: 24"W x 6-1/2"D x 10-1/2"T.
