This early 19th Century Pennsylvania 12 light corner cupboard retains its original red paint decoration. The cupboard is two piece and has two glazed doors over two drawers over two blind doors. The hardware is original except for the two brass pulls on the dovetailed drawers. There are two interesting latches that are mortised through on the top doors. The cupboard still has the original thick cast iron butte hinges. All the glass in the top doors is wavy and original. The mullions line-up with the 2 interior shelves which is always preferred. The interior is painted a pleasing light yellow and there are plate grooves on the shelves.
We found this cupboard in Frederick, MD about 20 years ago and was in our last house. It was featured in A Primitive Place and Country Sampler magazines (see photo of page from A Primitive Place Fall 2014 page 39). It is large and impressive, and is now looking for a new home.
MEASUREMENTS: 83 3/4" tall x 57" across the front. It takes about a 40" corner.
CONDITION: Excellent, clean condition. No losses. Touch-up to paint on lower doors where some added latches were removed.
