I have no idea what this was for but its really cool piece. Its a very light metal like tin and its got glass all around. On side it says Jacobs Kaffee and on top there are 2 slits so I think this was a coffee display. Its a cool piece to display your pretties in. The lock on door still works. Lots of wear to the metal as you can see in photos. Measures: about 15″ tall x 11.5″ across and 8.5 thick approximately. Double boxed for safe arrival.
