Provenance: From the Estate of Horst Rechelbacher, Osceola, Wisconsin.

Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, was a pioneer in the field of safe and eco-friendly cosmetics. The same curiosity that led him to explore ways to improve the beauty industry led him to travel the world, collecting rare and beautiful objects as he went.

Height: 70 in x width: 63 1/2 in x depth: 22 1/4 in.


The item is structurally sound and stable. The doors are warped and do not close firmly. There is discoloration to the wood along the sides. Tarnishing to the chrome fittings. Both keys are included but it is unknown of the locks function as the doors are unable to be fully shut due to the warping of the wood. Light wear to the interior wooden shelves.
