This Coppes Bros. & Zook cabinet was originally purchased by my grandfather, Ulysses S. Beach.  The original shipping label is still intact and legible on the back.  There is also a stenciled label which identifies the cabinet as a Model “4015 White.”  I assume that the “40” refers to the size of the cabinet since it is 40 inches wide, while the “15” may refer to some specific combination of features.  So far, however, I cannot find any Coppes catalog, literature or ad which refers to a Model 4015.  There is no built-in flour bin and no screw holes or other indication one was ever present.  The square Coppes Bros. badge just above the curtain/tambour suggests this unit was built between 1925 and 1930 (per the “Date Your Coppes Napanee Hoosier” page on this site).  Other than new casters the cabinet is still in original condition and now occupies a place of honor in the kitchen of my home (built in 1891 by my great-grandfather)

This Hoosier cabinet was given to me by a good friend when cleaning our her mother’s house probably over 20 years ago. Just finished restoration! I’m now lovingly finding baking and cooking items to fill the drawers and cabinets. I think it’s missing a rack on the top hutch, lower right door as there are horizontal dark thin stains (3) and 4 screw holes. I can’t find a picture of my exact cabinet. Would like to know the year. I know there are many styles and don’t see any identifying marks anywhere. Curious if there was a Hoosier museum and found you! Would love to visit soon.
