The lock is early but not original to this piece, and the lock plate is missing. The top and its hinges are all original and in good condition. The till in the interior retains its original lid.

A Flemish Oak Cupboard, Late 16th / Early 17th Century http://www.antiques.com/classified/35573/Antique-A-Flemish-oak-cupboard--late-16th---early-17th-century Height 62", width 59", depth 21". the carving of the front panels and the vertical stiles were common design elements of flemish furniture in the late 1500's and early 1600's. Examples of this style can be seen in the book, "mobilier de belgique et de la flancre francaise", by edith mannoni, pages 17, 19, 26, and 29. condition: in good condition and mostly original. The back consists of boards from another piece of early furniture. The three shelves are original except of the back section of one. The lock is an early replacement, and functions. The escutcheon, hinges, and probably the two door latches are original. Some worming to the top, which is original. This piece has an attractive old light-brown patina. #k14

A Renaissance Oak Cupboard Flemish, Late 16th / Early 17th Century http://www.antiques.com/classified/35574/Antique-A-renaissance-oak-cupboard-Flemish--Late-16th---early-17th-century Height 69" width 58" depth 24". the age of this piece can be established by various factors. The style of the carving on the door panels is typical of the late 16th/early 17th century. Also, the carving on the stiles and rails is known to have existed from the late 16th century. The plain molding on the top is typical of the 16th century; by the early 17th century, the molding was nearly always carved or the top contained a carved frieze. The overall size and shape of the cabinet is typical of flemish 4-door cupboards earlier in the 16th century, but this is the only one of this size and shape that i have seen with open shelves in the lower section. However, 16th-century cupboards from france typically have 2-door above an open section on the bottom. condition: the lower half of each corner post was replaced at some later time. It is also possible that the shelves were replaced at that time. #f80

A Small Flemish Renaissance Oak Cupboard, Flemish, 1633 http://www.antiques.com/classified/35575/Antique-A-small-Flemish-renaissance-oak-cupboard--Flemish--1633 Height 45â, width 31â, depth 19â. on either side of the door are figures carved in full relief, one carrying an anchor and the other a cross, each probably representing one of the three virtues, favorite subjects of the flemish during the 17th century. The deep center carving contains two birds (possibly flamingos) positioned back-to-back, with a small cartouche above carved with the date, 1633. There is a drawer above the door flanked by two cherubs in full relief. comparative examples: some other flemish one door cupboards are pictured on page 116 and 117 in the book, âbelgian furniture 1500-1800â, by thibaut wolvesperges. More are pictured on pages 31, 33, and 38 in the book, mobilier de belgique et de la flandre francaiseâ, by edith mannoni. It is interesting to note that, like the cupboard being offered, some of these comparative examples have a combination of very deep carving and relatively shallower carving, a characteristic in this case that indicates brugge as the city of origin. In the other examples, the deep carving is always on the posts and center of the door, and the more shallow carving is usually on the surrounding parts of the door and on the plinth. condition: the backboards and both shelves appear somewhat old, but are not original. Also, the drawer has been rebuilt apparently many decades ago, using new interior parts but retaining the original carved oak facing. #g40

This example includes six carved scenes of the life of christ in full relief. Lower section opens to two small drawers side-by-side along the top and a shelf in the middle.

A Small Flemish Baroque Cupboard, Third Quarter 17th Century http://www.antiques.com/classified/35582/Antique-A-small-Flemish-baroque-cupboard--third-quarter-17th-century Height 42", width 35", depth 23". this cupboard has an attractive geometric pattern painstakingly made up from small pieces of molding, a pattern that was widely popular in flanders in the mid-17th century. The barley-twist columns with their well-carved corinthian capitals point this piece as being from the early baroque period. The small holes in the doors were there for ventilation, a feature not uncommon in 17th-century pieces. Many of these one-door cupboards originally had a linen press built onto the top, but with advances in technology, the linen press parts became useless and were removed long to leave a more practical flat surface. Such is the case with this piece as evidenced by the two small wood plugs on the top. condition: the backboards are later but old, and the brass drawer pull is a replacement. The back left leg has been repaired. #h10

A Spanish Walnut And Iron Refectory Table, Late 17th Century http://www.antiques.com/classified/35587/Antique-A-Spanish-walnut-and-iron-refectory-table--late-17th-century Width 75", depth 31", height 30". early refectory tables from any country are in high demand due in part to their practical usefulness today. The spanish variety is especially practical since chairs can be comfortable positioned beneath the table, unlike the english variety with foot rails adjacent to the table edge. This particular table has especially attractive sculptured legs and decorative iron stretchers that are curved and ringed, ending in a scroll at the top. condition: in good overall condition for its age, and sturdy, ready for everyday use. The top has age cracks, scratches, dents, and burn marks (mainly along one edge), as may be expected in an original piece. The top of each leg has been restored with a 1/4" added strip of wood apparently to make the legs snug in the groove due to age shrinkage and wear (see photo "l26 leg top". The bottom of one leg has been restored due to excessive woodworm damage (see photo "l26 leg"), but otherwise the legs are original and in good condition. The upper surface of the top piece is all the original material, but there are minor restorations to the underside: four "hour-glass" brackets to hold the two top boards snug and an patch to one corner. #l26

The decoration on the doors could be any number of things, but this one borrows designs from the renaissance pieces of some 150 years earlier. This sturdy piece is made of thick oak. Even though it is heavy, it is easy to handle since the top lifts off, the doors slide up and off the hinges, and the whole upper and lower sections are separate. condition: good condition overall and basically all original. Various repairs such as some filled holes on the doors, a fairly large filled hole on the back (as seen in the photos), and replaced back feet. For convenience, two inconspicuous magnetic catches were lightly attached to keep the doors closed without having to use the locks, but they can be removed if desired. Includes the two original iron door locks, although they were not attached at the time the photos were taken. #e2
