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 19th century replacements; cupboard is worthy of upgrading to stylistically appropriate period hardware.

platform feet, no center stile; door construction, wrought iron “H” hinges, door construction and two tiers of
drawers. The drawer fronts feature astragal and cavetto moldings; dental molding at base of cornice is an
unusual feature. The construction of paneling ornamenting front stiles is found only on coastal Connecticut
