FULL DESCRIPTION
A lovely Georgian oak wall cabinet bought from an old manor house in Kent and in very good condition throughout with lovely satin walnut crossbanded borders, the door with ebony stringing and ebony losenge inlays, the walnut panel below the cornice outlined in ebony, and each of the three drawers outlined with ebony also.

The lower section with one large opening spice drawer flanked by two dummy drawers each with brass flower embossed knob handles which appear original also.

The drawer with its original oak linings with an old and small repair to the bottom of one side lining.

Original shelves working lock and key, original brass escutcheon with swan surmount.

Beautiful and original drop cup and cover mouldings beneath the cornice. 

Original boards throughout, minor dings and dents consistent with age and use. The chamfered and fielded door panel with hand adze marks to the inner face - a lovely reminder of the craftsman who made the cabinet - and fine shrinkage crack to the door which is entirely usual in cabinets of this age. All with a very good natural colour and patina from centuries of careful use, handling and wax.

Large, handsome and particularly good to have a large original spice drawer as these are not seen on wall cabinets very often.
