ANTIQUE 19TH CENTURY FEDERAL PERIOD NEW ENGLAND FRUIT WOOD HANGING WALL CABINET
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
With our highest compliments we're proud to offer for sale this exceptional New England Federal Period Fruit Wood Hanging Wall Cabinet. Crafted from the most select sapwood cuts of a New England fruit wood this cabinet is off the charts. We strongly believe this is a Vermont cabinet but the style persisted throughout most of New England. The cabinet features wonderful pegged construction and early joinery techniques. The cabinet has a central paneled door above 1 drawer with an inlaid pear wood escutcheon. The drawer retains it's original iron lock. The cabinet has an attractive lambs tongue carving on the edges and a complex base and crown molding. For a country made piece from a smaller New England town this was evidently made by a skilled cabinet maker.
