This counter comes with bags of character and detail.  There is, as sometimes we find a handy coin size hole that has been fashioned into the top of the counter.. this hole would have enabled the shop assistants to drop coins directly into the money drawer without opening it up.  We have a coin from the time this counter was used inside the drawer.. and also, in the drawer, when the coins would have dropped into, there is a small indentation where the falling coins have eroded away at the wood.. this is a magical detail.  This would be the centerpiece to your space: dining room, and entrance way, a shop, a restaurant, hotel, bar.  Made of solid pine, honestly, simply and beautifully detailed.  The back of the unit is beautifully paneled.. designed to be standing in the middle of the shop floor.  I have seen exactly this unit recently being used as a kitchen island, also it would make the most wonderful sideboard or hallway storage... and even as use in a shop as the counter it was designed to be.
