Beautiful chestnut wood Victorian sideboard with a marble top, oval mirrored back and lots of leaf, nut and foliage carving including a wonderfully carved lions head at the top center.
Hand cut dovetails join the drawers. This piece dates from the 1865-70s.
The interior of the drawers still has the old mustard colored milk paint. A testament to its authenticity as well as hand cut dovetails.
As to be expected on an item of this age and use there are a few places that the carving is missing but you have to search to find it.
For full disclosure-the marble has a slight cup to it which I did not notice when I bought this piece in Virginia. Had I know this I still would have bought this fine piece. The cup will still be there when your get it and should not be replaced, this piece is all original.
Price includes cleaning and waxing.
Made in the USA.
