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)
My cabinet was first my mother’s. It was given to my sister who blessed me with it. The plate in it says Auto Front Patented October 13, 1914
I think this is a 1927 LX with breakfast table model. It was my great grandmas. I believe someone painted it white at one point. Back in the early 80’s my dad had it stripped and restained. All original wood and hardware. Unfortunately the roll top did not survive.
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.
Bought it at an antiques dealer in Mt Pleasant. Wasn’t in terrible shape, so a fun restoration. All original hardware except for the Tag, wheels and one door catch. We’ve researched and are pretty sure it’s from 1922. Having a great time finding accessories
This cabinet was purchased by a family member, I believe, in the early 40’s. It traveled from Norwalk, CT to Rochester, NY to Dallas, TX and back to Norwalk again. There are no markings on it to show the brand and the flour sifter is missing. All hardware is original.
It’s believed to be a one of a kind, offered but not sure if any others were ever made or sold. Main feature is a wet sink, that’s a feature in all my years and being around Hoosier Cabinets I never saw. I am not the owner but have the permission of the owners to post photos of this absolutely beautiful piece of Hoosier Cabinet History.
Just got this. Looking for any info on it as well.
Presented to be 1909/1910.
It has a serial number on the paper inside the left top door to the flour bin. (Serial 379797) HOOSIER MANUFACTURING COMPANY, New Castle, Indiana, U.S.A.
Flour bin is stamped (Pat. Feb 8, 1910)
Metal plate on front of slide out work surface reads: PAT MAY 15, 1906
Feel free to email if you can help with any info.
Beautiful, oak, rare 1899-1906. I have never seen one like it. It is shown in a 1906 Hoosier ad. Zinc pull out top and a breadboard. 55 wide. It also has zinc lining the right side, bottom cupboard.
It is white, looks to be circa 1923. It does not have it’s original flour bin or roll top closure but does have its original plate.
