Description A distinctly individual cupboard with a rich Provincial flare, this cupboard is beautifully designed with relentless scalloping of the shelves. It is a flexible piece, perhaps intended for the display of plates in the kitchen, but is equally suitable as a bookshelf.

The lower open shelf is deep under three untouched original shelves that slide squarely over a large dovetail along the top. The series of four shelves above have a small raised lip along the back edge to support a plate. Each shelf has a gallery along the front that joins the sides with thick tenon-mortise and supported over four carved supports flanking a pierced and beautifully carved central baluster - every shelf features an entirely unique set of supports and central baluster while the symmetry of the flowing scrolling is mirrored from the crest through each shelf.

The surface throughout is warm with more than two centuries of polishing and rubbed use, delightfully oxidized and discolored throughout. This is a highly unique and wonderfully untouched piece that would look absolutely gorgeous in an interior where historical surface and the whimsical nature of the French Provincial taste would add depth.

Measurements: 14” D x 58” W (at the crest) x 87 1/2” H

Condition Report:
Early and heavily discolored surface, nicely patinated with old waxing. Apparently original hardware, no key. Repaired cracks and old breaks here and there, some patching to crest. Heavy wear/finish loss to feet; typical age indicators of cracking/abrasions/etc. as expected.
