Very Unusual Tall Mirrored Cabinet - For Sale

Very Unusual Tall Mirrored Cabinet
Price: $4800.00
Circa 1880. Tall, Victorian, mirrored cabinet in solid mahogany. This is one of the most striking and unusual pieces of 19th century American furniture we have ever owned. Very high quality, with exceptionally detailed cabinetry in a deceptively simple design. All the drama of this piece on first viewing is the sheer size. It stands nine feet ( 108") tall but only 49" wide at the widest point (top of crown). The next thing that you see is the five sections of mirror, perfect for display or books, each with a single large central star, that are flat on the face side but deeply cut in the shape of a starburst from the backside. The cabinet has two doors and two drawers with original brass hardware. The door has a working lock and key. There is a repair on the door which we have made to fill a hole left by an inappropriate piece of hardware that we removed. All of the panels on the front and sides of the cabinet and on the columns that hold the four narrow shelves are an unusual raised panel in what I would call a pyramid shape. This fine piece of antique furniture also retains it's original pine plank back which is finished on the interior of the cabinet The cabinet also has it's original central shelf. Very good over-all condition with some old repairs and restorations, and some unevenness to the moldings around the drawers that could be fixed if desired. We have re-glued and re-polished the entire cabinet so that everything looks and functions well, much better and more even toned in person than the pictures which were difficult to take and light on such a tall, narrow piece of furniture. 108" tall x 46" wide at the base x 26" deep. Price 4800.
