Furniture - Case Pieces


Mural Cupboard 

English, 1680-1720

An attractive and useful hanging cupboard of the sort you don't see very often. The geometric moldings are appealingly elongated, and the patina is old and good.

Mural Livery Cupboard 

English, 1600-1630

Mural livery cupboard to hold the bread, cheese and beer ("livery") that was given to each member of the household for supper and breakfast. The cupboard was pierced to keep the livery fresh and was hung on the wall out of reach of rats and mice.

Valuables Cabinet 

Dutch, c.1700

What hits you first is its powerful crest (composed of six molded boards.) Then its size, it's larger than most, but then, you have more valuables… Stand it on the floor or on a table. Ten interior drawers around a pigeon hole (we've always wondered what these were for -- pigeons??) Double-arched, cock-beaded skirt with suppressed ball feet. The sides are five horizontal boards -- avoiding the cracking risk of a single vertical board. Everywhere you look, you see something to admire.

Diminutive Cabinet 

Dutch, c.1675

What a charmer! Boarded doors and sides with applied moldings simulating panels. Bold top and bottom moldings and big Dutch feet. Just the right height for an end table, or it could be a table cabinet if you have the right table to take it. Wherever you put it, you'll love it.

Kneehole Desk or Dressing Table 

English, c.1725

This form was originally used either as a desk or a dressing table, or both. Today, it's ideal as a computer desk. These flat top desks are ideal for computers -- the 29" height is perfect. But, whatever you use it for, it's beautiful, small and ready for any room in the house.
