EXCEPTIONAL & RARE 19TH CENTURY VICTORIAN TIGER OAK MEDICAL / PHYSICIANS CABINET W/ CARVED MIRRORED CREST & MIRRORED BOTTOM
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We're delighted to offer for sale this spectacular 19th century tiger oak Victorian physicians / medical cabinet. We acquired this recently from a lovely Greenwich CT estate where it housed one of the most significant medical collections we've had the pleasure of seeing in quite some time. This is a nice, old, correct and true Victorian cabinet. We have it dated 1870-1880. We value originality above all and DO NOT sell items with major flaws or defects.
This cabinet has three incised carved drawers each retaining their original embossed brass pulls and decorative escutcheons. This example is fitted with a mirrored bottom and three cut glass shelves. The beveled glass sides (side lights) are a very nice addition to the recessed panel sides. The gallery employs a nice rounded beveled glass mirror amid acanthus leaf and a central shell carving. The gallery sides are scrolled and triple incised carved. When all the design elements come together it makes a truly exceptional oak medical cabinet with all the bells and whistles. We see these in a varying degree of complexity and this one is a 10/10. We chose to include our natural light photos along with our professionally done ones. We didn't want the beauty of the glass to be lost in translation. The cabinet is 25" wide x 16" deep x 72" tall
