Antique Faux Painted Wall Cabinet

This one caught our eye for two reasons. First, the faux finish is all original and includes the date, 1908, boldly painted at the bottom of the door and the "tree of life" on the on the upper portion of the door. These suggest that the cabinet was made as a gift, possibly for a wedding.

The second feature we like is the cubby hole just below the door. At first glance this appears to be the opening for a missing drawer, but a careful look confirms that it never held a drawer and was purposefully made.

The cabinet is a good size at 19" wide by 12 1/2" deep and 29" tall at the front. The top slopes to the back which is only about 28" tall. This is a curious but visually appealing feature. It has four fixed shelved. The single panel door is framed by a bold cove and bead profile. The cove is accented in silver which is a nice counterpoint to the red faux finish. The complex cornice molding is equally bold. The period door latch is original.

There were two small areas of paint loss on the door. We had these professionally restored consistent with the original faux finish. The cornice molding has been re-nailed. The piece is as made.
