19th Century American Blue Painted Corner Cabinet in Eastern Shore style

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This carefully crafted cabinet is a visually stunning, deeply patinated and worn work with great form and sense of age. The faceted shape is just gorgeous - a pair of doors with six glass panes under worn molded astragals framed in double-pinned through tenon-mortise joinery swinging on H-hinges open to reveal a pair of scalloped maple shelves with a distressed eggshell paint. The lower portion has a pair of tombstone raised panel doors, the recess highlighted with an ivory paint, these opening to reveal a second pair of shelves. The cabinet rests over scroll cut bracket feet. The backboards are incredibly thick and quite early planks with even rows of rusty wrought iron nails throughout. It is a gorgeous piece full of color and life that will brighten up any room it becomes a part of.

Measurements: 81" high x 40" wide across the front; 21" deep to the flat of the back; 12" width across the flat-most part of the back
