Georgian Linen Press Cupboard, c.1800
Our Stock # LFA-1226
This is an antique, Georgian press cupboard dating to c.1800.
The patina and deep russet tones of this modest cabinet are a true delight. Formerly having a press on top, this cabinet would have been used 'below stairs' for the pressing and storage of table linens.
Raised on bun feet with a flared, concave lower moulding, this versatile cupboard features a pair of field panel doors opening to reveal a single, sturdy shelf. Behind the lock escutcheon the original lock remains but is untested as the key is absent. The original iron, slide bolt is in place and works well.
A pair of full width, dovetailed drawers are dressed with bronze pulls and a simple gouge edge detail. The three plank top is made of stout, solid stock as one would expect to take the rigours of acting as a press platform, and is edged with a generous moulding.
An antique with plenty of character and charm, delivered waxed, polished and ready for the home.
