What a unique walnut Victorian Renaissance Revival style parlor cabinet! Generally, parlor cabinets are much larger than this one, which makes it both more unique and more adaptable. In addition, check out the luscious color and veining on the marble tops which are original to the piece. The burgundy, golds, grays, and beige colorings are richly patterned throughout. The back crest has a deeply carved rosette, and prominent mouldings and applied highly burled walnut panels. There is a central marble topped closed cabinet with narrow attached open cabinet on either side which drop down in height and step back in depth. The center door has a deeply recessed highly burled shapely walnut panel flanked by raised burled walnut panels and carved rosettes. Inside the door are 2 shelves. The door has its original working lock and key. Below the door is a narrow hand dovetailed drawer with an inset burled walnut front. On both sides of the door is an open narrow compartment which originally held 2 dividers. This may have been for sheet music, etc. Notice the carved treatment above and to the outside of the openings. The sides of the cabinet have recessed panels. Below are 4 boldly carved and turned legs surrounding a bottom shelf. The cabinet has its original castors which were not attached when the pictures were taken. This credenza or console retains its original finish which is in excellent condition. The size, form, quality and rare marble make this cabinet a most unique and desirable piece. 49"h X 34"w X 18"d, Condition-Excellent, Circa-1870's.
