Seller: barrie5757 (721) 100%, Location: cambridge, Ships to: GB, Item: 252612679223 Product Type: KITCHEN CUPBOARD, Original/Reproduction: Original, Style: Dutch/ Flemish, Age: Pre-1800, Material: SOLID OAK, Details: On offer here is this beautiful 19th-century French farmhouse cupboard/dresser.solid oakcirca 1880140cm wide x 147cm tall x 60cm deep Made sometime at the end of the 19th century this beautiful piece of furniture is made of solid oak, I bought it in France last week I think we can say that it is French / Flemish. On each door are detailed carvings with swags and flowers at the top and baskets of flowers at the bottom of the doors typical of French provincial furniture from this period and on each door the original rococo brass key escutcheon. It is a rustic/provincial piece of furniture but i would say it was made by a cabinetmaker not a carpenter due to the use of quite fine mouldings. it is very well-made using traditional styles of furniture making from this period like wainscot paneling on the sides. It consists of two two carved doors which open to reveal a cupboard and two drawers there are three shelves inside the cupboard. this is an excellent piece of storage. I absolutely love this piece of furniture if I had room for it I would take it home, to my taste it is one of the nicest places in furniture I have had this year. Its colour and age are part of its charm as well as it being a very useful item of furniture. It has the sort of character that just cannot be reproduced it has a room even colour and its patina is fantastic. CONDITION Obviously this is an old rustic piece of furniture so there are some signs of wear consistent with its age but overall it is in very good condition with no splits or cracks and no funny smells. On the top left hand side of the cupboard as you look at it there is a quarter inch of the beading which has been removed obviously to get into the space which was too small for it. (see pic) in the Photographs it is stood on two small wooden blocks because the ground was uneven.
