We’re told it’s from the late 1930s, possibly used up through and after WW2. The frame is Zinc plated steel rod, welded together. The shelving pieces are aluminum, with a silk-screened front on each shelf. The shelves each have 4 aluminum tabs that can be bent around the frame to keep them in place. Fortunately, these tabs were never bent, so it comes apart without any problems. We’re pretty sure the 2 small signs on top are reproductions, but they do seem to match what Wise was using back in the 1930s. It’s hard to find metal shelving units from the 1930s, as so many of them were given to the wartime scrap drives. We do our best to accurately describe the items we offer. We try to check for messages daily. We have a stellar reputation in the mid-Atlantic area, and can furnish references on request. We strive to provide the best descriptions and photographs, and have really “neat stuff”, as our name implies! Up thru 2016 when we stopped doing the antique shows, we were one of the top vintage toy dealers at the largest antique show in the Washington, DC area. We do not falsely lower merchandise values or mark items as “gifts” – US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. Our international clients are very important to us.
