Fantastic one of a kind solid oak sideboard, imported from England and dating back to the turn of the 20th century.
The first thing that catches your eye has to be the 4 wonderfully hand carved court jester faces on the back splash. Each one is slightly different with it's own unique character.
The angled fluted top edge has 3 drawers concealed within, one of which has the original green velvet lining which would have been the cutlery drawer.
Below there are 2 large central drawers flanked by 2 spacious cupboards. The cupboard doors boast an unusual carved scalloped edge and a central club design.
Both side edges are fluted and terminate in a beautiful hand carved rosette and the whole thing stands on 4 short chunky turned legs.
The beautiful brass drop handles are all original and cupboard still retains it's working lock and key.
There is some minor wear throughout the piece, mainly on the legs and sides which is normal age appropriate wear. There are no major marks or rings on the top and no splitting of the wood.
This is an extremely heavy solid wood piece of furniture. I have shown a picture of the back so that you can see just how solid it is. The aged oak wood grain is beautiful and it is in super sturdy condition.
What a wonderful, unique, one of a kind piece of old furniture this is with an abundance of character and charm and ready to bring a sense of grandeur to any ones home.
Dimensions: width 60 1/4", depth 23", server height 36", total height 40 1/4".
