This antique boule cabinet (about 7 feet high!) hails from Marseille where petanque is played constantly!

The price tag is $1850 - a bit steep, but I think an interested club could re-create it with some carpentry skills. The individually numbered doors (containing a deep boule "cubby") can be locked with individual padlocks; the upper and lower doors are larger spaces (presumably holding the pastis) and are lockable with a bolt lock.

It's nice to see the history of our sport displayed so formidably.
