This early cherry 2 piece cupboard was made in Pennsylvania and is generally referred to as a Dutch or stepback cupboard. The top cabinet has a wonderful wide cove moulding with hard to find matchstick moulding below. Each of the two doors has 12 individual panes of glass. Most of the early glass is original with its waviness and desirable imperfections. One of the panes has a crack. This can be replaced if desired. Each door has its brass turn screw pull. There appears to have been 2 later alterations. The top cabinet was cut into 2 pieces at some point – possibly to get up a staircase. Also, the top door hinges were replaced. Neither alteration is offensive or noticeable and do not detract from its integrity. The base cabinet has 3 hand dovetailed drawers with wooden pulls over 2 doors. The doors have recessed panels; their original brass ‘H’ shaped hinges and brass turn screw pulls. Inside each door is a shelf. Notice the use of decorative reeding along the outside of the doors and drawers. This incorporates the matchstick moulding above. The stepback cupboard rests on bracket feet. The finish is in great condition having a warm color and desirable patina. 79.5"h X 60"w X 17.5"d, Condition: Very Good, Circa: 1820's.
