This oak curved glass china cabinet is from 1890-1900. The door glass is flat, the side glass is curved. This has been stripped and refinished/restored by us. We used a medium dark oak dye stain to bring out the grain patterns. Dye stains give better clarity to grain patterns than pigmented stains. The finish is satin lacquer rubbed baby smooth then waxed. The shelves are original to the cabinet and have a double plate groove in them. The claw feet are minimally done and tasteful.
Yes, the door latch hardware is not on the door and the glass has not been put back in the sides, but we have it all. It was removed for restoration. We will get the glass back in soon. There just doesnt seem to be enough time to do everything. and then there is the memory thing.... but it will get done!
This cabinet has a mirror in the back behind the top shelf to better display the items and gives a more spacious look.
As a comparison, we would charge $1000-$1200 for restoration of this cabinet if it were to come into the restoration shop. It is a good buy and a good size.
