This Victorian parlor cabinet has dramatic detailing. Parlor cabinets were highly prized during the mid-Victorian period and owning one was considered a form of status. They were used to display prized possessions and served as a focal piece of furniture. This walnut cabinet is in the Renaissance Revival style and is accented with ebonized trim and gold incising. The raised top platform has an ornate backsplash with a boldly carved decorative front. The concave shaped top shelves are supported by turned and carved full columns. There is a center door with a glass front surrounded by burled walnut. It retains its original brass key escutcheon and working lock with key. Inside is a single removable shelf. The shelf measures 27” wide by 12” deep. Notice the dramatic recessed burled walnut panels on the sides and the applied burled walnut panels on the back. Bold carvings and mouldings accent the cabinet throughout. The cabinet retains its original finish which is in very good to excellent condition. A previous owner installed a light inside the cabinet which can be turned on or off from a switch located on the back. This can be easily removed if desired and has not affected the integrity of the piece or its appearance. 58"h X 45"w X 20"d, Condition: Very Good, Circa: 1870's.
