Regency Breakfront Sideboard, c.1830
Our Stock # LFA-1185
This is a Victorian breakfront sideboard dating to c.1830 from the important early 19th century furniture dealer James Winter & Sons, 101 Wardour Street, Soho, London.
Solidly made in fine cuts of English oak, displaying medullary rays in the panels and top, this breakfront sideboard is raised on a continuous plinth featuring a central, twin door cupboard with drawer above, flanked by full height cupboards complete with slides, shelves and a lined wine drawer.
The classical overtones, so typical of this revival period, are displayed in the architectural nature of the columns and blind panel cornice elements around the fielded panels and also in the drawer pull detailing.
The dealers stamp can be clearly seen impressed into the top of the drawer front panel and reads 'James Winter & Sons, 101 Wardour St, Soho, London'. The cupboard doors, with brass locks absent, close and friction hold completing the unencumbered look of the piece.
