Vintage ice box

For this project, I did a lot of research and it didn't came up easily to find this information, as I was looking for the wrong term ;-)
But after a little research, I figured out what I am looking for and start fresh. Here is what I've found:

LARGE AUTHENTIC HERRICK ANTIQUE ICE BOX SOLID OAK






A video, not quite an ice box - and it doesn't look like the one we havem but here it is:

Some info about dry ice, here.

Here is THE ANTIQUE REFRIGERATOR SITE, some information about the history of refrigerators ;-)
One miniature refrigerator:

Superb vintage ice box

Old stuff forum with ice box. 





Brilliant idea to refresh an old refrigerator. ;-) 
Still, I find the turquoise one more attractive. 

Antique ice box in good shape.





Beautiful Antique Oak Ice Box -- 
dates back to the early 1900's I believe---  
In great original working condition--

OLD Icebox "Automatic" Morrison, ILL T Hinges/Latches 
Brass Plate Steel over OAK
Description
Vintage block ice refrigerator/ice box. Probably 20's era. 
 Made by DOUBLE DUTY AA in Morrison, Ill.  
It was called the 'SUPER STEEL AUTOMATIC'.  
Brass plate is original as is everything else in the icebox. 
 Brass plate boasts that it saves food, chills water, and uses less ice.  
It's in superior original condition.  
All hinges and latches are perfect.
There is absolutely no dings, or dents anywhere in the unit.
It's entirely covered with steel wrap coating over solid oak wood.  
Note that the inside is as good, (underneath the steel wrap)
 if not better than the outside.  
Inside door panels are perfect.  All inside liners are fine.
Two original wire racks and the original galvanized block ice tray.
I pictured a standard 2-wheel dolly next to the unit for size comparison. 
 It needs a good cleaning and possible refinish if so desired.
Put a block of ice inside, and it's functional.
It's 42-1/2" high x 32-1/2" wide x 22" deep including the large latches.  
About 175 to 200 pounds I'm guessing.
It's been stored inside a dry shed for a great number of year. 
It's in excellent original condition. It went back inside after the hayfield pictures.
