Description A special piece for its restrained dimensions and exquisite surface decorations throughout, this fine George III corner cabinet exhibits an overall blue painted surface highlighted by embossed and stenciled "chinoiserie" embellishments. Crafted in two parts, the top lifts off of the lower cabinet over two dowels, both being distinctive units and allowing for easy and safe transport of the cabinet. The broken-arch pediment projects slightly over the six-pane door, this opening to reveal a fixed-shelf interior with an overall red stain wash. The lower cabinet houses a single fixed shelf. Simple bracket feet raise the cabinet.

As a product of the last quarter of the 18th century, the overall state of preservation is rather excellent. While surface touch ups and minor hardware replacements have occurred over the years, the structure remains pure and entirely original. A very fine piece, cheery and lively with its vibrant and expertly decorated surface.


Corner Cabinet: 81"h x 29" wide (crest) x 15" D; upper is 45 1/2" h lower is 35 1/2"h

Condition Report:
Wear to painted surface throughout; refreshing and touch ups to painted surface throughout (the hue variance from the earlier blue is self-evident); painted decorations are quite early but we are not certain that they are original. Some joint separations in feet and crown moldings. 1 working key for replaced lock in lower door (does not operate the upper door). Some loss to raised-relief of chinoiserie, some touch up to gilt stenciling. Replaced hinges. Sturdy and stable.
