Gun Rack and Ammo Box, Shrine of the Pines, Baldwin, Michigan

This image shows objects immediately to the right of the beds in the previous photo, as the two items on the left of the image here match the items on the right in the ‘bedroom’ picture.

This stump was carved open and hinged, then some additional materials were put on top to provide a display case for the shotguns. The antlers act as traps for the barrels while on the bottom there are pits carved for the gun butts.

The L.L. Cook Co., Milwaukee, WI

The bottom of the stump has been carved like a refrigerator and hinged on one side to allow closable storage for ammunition, shown displayed both in boxes in front of the stump, but also individual cartridges on the shelves and the door trays.

This image dates from the 1940s.
