Cupboard-Hanging, Flared & Stepped Cornice,
Paneled Door, Molded Base
Pennsylvania, circa 1800
pegged mortice and tenon joinery, small size
cherry and poplar, original surface
Wonderful surface, wrought iron hardware including hanging device, rose head nails
Featuring a stepped cornice of a raised-panel door and molded base. The interior features two original shelves; backboard is a single raised panel. It appears that this cupboard may have been used in a printing shop whereas the black patina seen at area of door-pull is ink; the interior also displays traces of ink in a wonderful-way. The ink is thin and limited to the lower half of door and stile…the area where a inked hand would normally close the door…looks great! The door pull, and swing latch are 19thcentury replacements; cupboard is worthy of upgrading to stylistically appropriate period hardware.

Pleasing scale, proportion, color, and design
The beaded case with applied moldings displays three sunken panels on each side and features a three over two-drawer over paneled door arrangement; door retains original escutcheon and brass pull.
