With our highest compliments we're proud to offer for sale this exceptional 18th century Queen Anne period secretary top / jelly cupboard. We believe this was originally an applewood secretary top of great scale. The previous owner's family has used this as a free standing jelly cupboard / cabinet the last 3 generations ~150 years. We strongly feel this is a Hartford county Connecticut cabinet but to heir to caution we'll call it New England. We lament we didn't get to see the entire secretary as a whole. We can imagine how massive and stately it would have been. This would without a doubt be locked away in a museum or historical society were it whole. This cabinet is a fantastic example of early joinery techniques. The case has wonderful hand cut dovetails along the crown and the base. The tombstone paneled doors are quite sophisticated and executed exceptionally well by an early American country cabinet maker. The cabinet is further decorated with fruit wood escutcheons and carved vertical stiles a rare CT embellishment. The cabinet is in it's original red wash finish undisturbed aside from being cleaned. We note the hinges were replaced. The lower door retains the old iron lock. The cabinet is 46 1/2" wide x 16 1/2" x 44" tall.
