Dealers' display cabinets

Hi all,

Does anyone have any pictures of pre-war dealers' cabinets? There seems to be a reasonable number of post-war glass cabinets (usually with 4 shelves) around but I don't think I have seen a pre-war dinky cabinet - perhaps none were made?

Thanks,

Stephen

Re : Dealers' display cabinets

Hi Stephen

I do not recall ever seeing anything other than than the ones you talk about, they are in Dinky and Hornby Dublo versions which suggests post-war.

Re : Dealers' display cabinets

Hi all!

I'm putting this post here because there's a gentleman in Western Canada (can't be more specific asI don't know) who has a large, 11 steps high by 5 feet wide, display cabinet of the stepped type and who appears to wish to dipose of it. 

Is anyone on here from BC or Alberta who would consider privately being put in touch with the gentleman?

Re : Dealers' display cabinets

I am in California but collect original Dinky dealer cabinets and would certainly be interested in finding out more from this gentleman.
