The cabinet has not been identified as to maker.

Most of Museum Victoria's collection of priinting type is kept in purpose-built cabinets that were used to house type when that type was being used for printing. The type kept in a particular cabinet was not necessarily the type that was originally in that cabinet. The type has been catalogued according to the numbered cabinet it is in. In one case, the 'cabinet' is a museum storage container and not an original type cabinet. However, for the sake of consistency, the type has been catalogued as being in a cabinet.
