This handsome solid cherry 2 piece cabinet is referred to as a Pennsylvania Dutch cupboard. The top has a bold cornice with 2 glass doors each having 6 separate panes. The early glass is original and they retain their original locking mechanism. Inside are 3 shelves. Two of them have their original removable plate rails which re strips of wood used to support and keep the china or pewter in place. Also, two of the shelves have utensil holders which are carved into the edge of the shelves in which you drop in your spoons, etc. for storage. Each shelf has double grooves to also support your upright plates for storage and display. Notice the open area below the top cabinet. This is called a pie shelf and, yes, it is where pies were placed for cooling and storage. The base cabinet has 3 hand dovetailed drawers with rolled fronts and two recessed paneled doors below with a single shelf inside. Notice the simple, but elegantly turned full column on either side of the doors. The cupboard rests on boldly turned feet and has recessed paneled ends. The finish is in excellent condition having a warm color and desirable patina. What an attractive and functional piece for your kitchen, dining room or study. 68"h X 56"w X 21"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1830-1840's.
