is an example of a stunning quality antique Welsh Georgian oak and mahogany glazed
cupboard, circa 1810, in excellent condition, most likely originating from the
Talwrn area of Anglesey, North Wales.
The cupboard features a protruding oak canopy above twin dome shaped
glazed cabinet doors; which open to reveal two internal fixed shelves, with the
original plate beads and decoratively carved shelf fronts. The cabinet features the original hinges,
working door lock and key. The cabinet
interior retains its original condition; it has not been lined or painted
(which is usually the case in later years).
Three elegant mahogany spice drawers sit below the glass cabinet. The cock-beaded spice drawers feature faux keyholes
with oak diamond shaped escutcheons.
sits a sturdy oak base with a “two-over-two” drawer design (two small drawers
above two larger drawers). The pine
lined hand dovetailed drawers boasts geometric inlay to the drawer fronts, with
oak diamond shaped escutcheons, and the original working locks (with key) but
with later brassware. The drawers sit in
a cock-beaded frame (this is unusual, as it is normally the drawers that are
cock-beaded). The cupboard features “dot
and diamond” motifs inlaid to the stiles on the glazed cabinet, and stiles to
the base. The design and style of this
piece is typical of vernacular furniture from the Talwrn area of Anglesey,
North Wales. The base stands on its
original ogee bracket oak feet; the sides of the cupboard feature inset oak
panels (cupboards from this region with oak sides are deemed better quality
than those with pine sides). The back of
the cupboard features its original pine backboards. The cupboard dismantles into two sections for
easy access into the house.
The cupboard features a rich gold oak
colour. As it boasts the original
polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved
through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
cupboard would look superb in a variety of rooms from the office, library, living
room or kitchen. This item base would certainly grace any home. So don't miss out your chance to own a lovely
piece of furniture.
cupboard in is excellent condition.
Nominal old use marks to the leading edges but nothing significant
considering the age of the item. The
cabinet features the original glass (with some old scratches/scuffs to the
glass) and shelves. Importantly, the
finely glazed doors are not warped in anyway (this is common with antique doors
of this refined style). The cupboard
boasts oak sides (cupboards from this region with oak sides are deemed better
quality than those with pine sides). The
“dot and diamond” oak inlay and escutcheons is all original and intact and in
excellent condition. The drawer fronts feature
later brassware. All drawers are hand
dovetailed, pine lined and close flush to the frame. The cupboard stands on its original ogee
bracket feet. This item is well
constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
