This is a massive and beautifully proportioned American half-glazed corner cupboard, built in two pieces in cherry. It is plain and simple in style, with a boldly swept crown and two glazed wide-swinging doors to the upper section and two raised paneled doors to the lower, and stands on a nicely-formed bracket foot.
The three full-depth shelves in the top each have two channels for plate display against the wide tongue, groove, and bead backboards and a single shelf divides the bottom for convenient storage. This piece has a wonderful patina of original worn red paint, paste-waxed to a lovely warm glow.
The right hand door still bears its original glass, although the putty has been replaced with wooden quarter round. The left hand door is a very well executed replacement. We believe the decorative tiger striped brass hinge plates were added around 1900, about the same time that the present three working locks were installed. The crown requires 36" from corner along wall. Base requires 34.5" In great condition with wear consistent with age and use.
USA, circa 1850.
