FULL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful Georgian corner cabinet with original thickly hewn oak backboards and original shaped shelves to the interior. Of small and elegant proportion and in excellent condition.

It is unusual to find 18th century pieces in solid yew wood and here the yew is richly burred and has developed a truly superb colour.

The cupboard is free standing and very heavy and sturdy. The doors open and close smoothly and the shelves are level and firm.

The cornice frieze and plinth are later additions as the cupboard was originally built in to a corner of a Georgian house. The later additions were added in 19th century to allow it to be freestanding but have been on the cupboard for more than a century and are extremely well blended as you can see from our photographs.

The turn thumb handles are copper and brass and the fielded panel doors have a lovely chamfered border. Upper arch to the interior original also.

A very beautiful and rare example in yew with an exemplary colour and naturally deep patina and dating from c. 1770.
