An Outstanding Carved Cupboard
This amazing cupboard has such an elaborate facade! Everywhere you look you see all kinds of carved knobs, finials, posts, medallions, mounted one on top of the other! The lower level which measures 4-1/4" from the floor up to the table surface has flanking cubicles with finials on top and a lovely centered mirror with a gold framed beveled mirror. Above the mirror is a round tiny mirror set as a pediment above the larger mirror. All the attached wooden decoration, like carved spindles and knobs seem to be in a darker stain which really emphasizes the intricate work on this piece. The large center door is framed with a darker stained background with a silhouette of a warrior in raised relief mounted on a circular blue background set in gold twigs. On each side are flanking small silhouettes, like the one in the center cupboard (when door is opened, there is a shelf inside) A magnificent piece for a grand hall, for a library , bedroom etc.
Measurements: 9-3/8" tall. These pieces were very tall pieces in a room.
Circa: 19th Century
Price: SOLD
