Here's a choice unusual oak English corner cabinet dating from the last quarter of the 18th century. Not the usual unadorned single door type usually found, but a beautifully preserved dual door example, featuring inlay and extensive cross-banding. A fine dentil molded cornice with canted corners over a conforming case is fitted with a pair of paneled doors to shaped shelves. There is no "creakiness" or missing veneer; everything is solid and tight. Nice to find that even the interior paint (dark green) is original. Most have been repainted. There is no lock mechanism, only a keyhole. The brass pull, while old and correct stylistically, is most likely a later replacement. Sample examination of some of the hinge screws reveals that they are in fact blunt-nosed and handmade.
Measures: 41" tall, 39" wide, 22" depth.
