American Antique Scrubbed Pine Jelly Cupboard Cabinet, Pennsylvania, circa 1830

$2,425Asking Price


This is a simply gorgeous antique jelly cupboard crafted during the second quarter of the 19th century. Featuring a single solid board of pine on the top, dovetailed along the edges with exposed joints to the sides of the case, the molding around the top is bold in it’s projection over the edges. The triple-paneled door is quite striking, each panel deeply chamfered on the interior and set into rabbet cuts in the frame. The entire frame of the door features pegged through-tenon-mortise construction, allowing the wood to easily expand and contract while maintaining control over the structure; the door swings freely on original forged iron hinges. The lock is absent and a later bracket was installed on the door to assist in keeping the cabinet closed, the round wooden knob above the keyhole likely also an addition. The sides of the case are solid planks of pine from top to bottom, the outermost backboards finished on the edges to become part of the case sides, also continuing down into full rear feet. The backboards run vertical to the case, each being tacked with neat even rows of large square forged iron nails. The interior of the case is a somewhat graduated shelved space, the full length solid planks creating outstanding depth to the cupboard. It is an austere piece comfortably introduced in any room: a display cabinet in the living room, a small “armoire” in the bedroom, a linens and towel cabinet in the guest bedroom or dressing room and as a cupboard for the Fine china in the dining room. This cupboard would originally have had a fully painted surface, probably of the teal blue color found in crevices of the piece. Materials: Yellow pine and poplar Measurements: 35 1/2" wide x 21 7/8" deep x 55 3/4" high Condition report: Refinished. Original hinges with a few replaced screws. Scratches to the left side of the cupboard. Wooden knob on the front is replaced, lock absent from the inside of door, brass clasp is added. Triangular patch to the back of the top. Two later holes drilled inside of the cabinet.
