Mahogany Side Liquor Cabinet with Dore Bronze Handle and Veneered Columns
A dining room side cabinet in the Empire style. The piece is of mahogany, fitted with a convex center door with freestanding veneered columns at either side, the columns with acanthus leaves capitals and bases.
Above the door is a single drawer. This piece does not correlate to American cellarettes, those specialized small pieces of furniture made for liquor/wine storage which are usually low and have a hinged lift top. This is a sideboard cabinet, made as part of a suite of dining furniture.
This cabinet was from my parent's collection and stood for 50 years in their home amidst many fine antiques. A lovely cabinet that would accent any prominent home.
Condition : There is some veneer damage and loss, and hairline crack at top.
American, New York, Circa 1920
Size: Approximately 21" wide at top, 25" deep at center, 40" tall
