Spice Cupboard

English, 1700-20

Fruitwood, chestnut drawer linings. Straight out of a country kitchen! Beautiful honey color, never been refinished. Molded and scratch decorated door enclosing eight molded-front drawers with wooden pulls. The drawers dovetailed (!) are lined in chesnut - better wear-resistance than fruitwood. Original (crude) hinges. Losses typical of fruitwood in daily use. You'll either love its blantant, uncorrected history of age and use, or you'll walk away. Losses to base and top from age and use, now stable. No restoration. Two pulls are old replacements.

18" w x 8" d x 14"h.
