Fabulous Pair of Corner Cupboards

A fabulous pair of matched corner cupboards with barrel fronts. 

For the first time ever, we are excited and proud to offer a pair of mahogany, barrel front, corner cupboards. To say these are rare, would not do them justice. Made in England around the turn of the 18th century, this pair features a pair of glazed door tops over a pair of bookend matched, flame mahogany.The mahogany is beautiful and really catches the eye. However, the real “show stopper” can be found on each shelf and on the top. There one sees matching, pierced fret work with a gentle rolling arch. The complexity of the fret work is outstanding. With over 225+ years of age, the fret work does come with a bit of damage and repair, mostly on the top of one cupboard. However, they are in amazing condition for something so beautiful and fragile. If this was it, these would be amazing pieces but it is not. Upon seeing these for the first time it is impossible to notice their size. They are 8’ 1” tall and take a 24” corner. Yes, they only need a 24” corner! They are fancy, elegant, tall, and thin! What a combination.  The pictures below do not do these pieces justice.

Each cupboard is two part. Both appear to retain its original finials and glass. The lower doors feature brass trim on the edge of each door. One of the two cupboards has had H hinges on it. They would never have had them and were already removed when we found them. This can clearly be seen in the pictures but it is not as noticeable in person. The other cupboard has had a fair amount of repair work done to the fret work on the top. Detailed pictures of the repair are shown along with pictures of the one that has not been damaged. The repairs are not noticeable unless one is looking for them. We painted the interiors and can repaint them if a change in color is desired. Refinished by us.

All in all, these are…FABULOUS! It is doubtful a pair of corner cupboards can be found for sale anywhere much less, a pair of this caliber. English. Circa 1790-1810.

Price: $19,950 for the pair
