Mahogany Cabinet

 


Circa 1850 China Cabinet

This is a beautiful Crotch Mahogany china cabinet. There are glass panels on the ends of both the upper and lower section. The front of the cabinet and both sets of doors are serpentine shaped. The cabinet was crafted in the elegant Mallard or  Belter style. The floral carving (See photos below) and pure quality are indicative of Mallard craftsmanship.

This beautiful cabinet is in wonderful condition with original finish. As previously mentioned, we believe the cabinet to be circa 1850. The rope band on the base top, style of floral carving, and detail to the back panel are indicative of high quality designer furniture. It has the look of Mallard or Belter era furniture.

The area between the upper and lower doors is a mirror, what is seen is a reflection of the wall and items behind the camera. The only flaws on this cabinet are the small crack seen on the edge of the base top, and the glass in the two lower doors has been replaced with plexi-glass. New glass for the lower doors can be formed by specialty glass companies, but we chose to leave the cabinet in "as found" condition.
