Dutch Colonial Mahogany & Ebony CupboardLate 19th century
A beautiful antique Dutch colonial cupboard in mahogany with a deep flaring cornice with an ebony moulded edge above a short ebony frieze. The double doors are constructed with fielded panels inlaid at centre with a design in ebony and white cedar and surrounded by a moulded ebony edge. The doors open to an interior with two shelves. The lower section of the cabinet has a moulded ebony edge and two flush fitting drawers in the frieze with ebony pulls. The scalloped apron is inlaid with ebony foliage. The legs are in a traditional Dutch style with a bulbous top, tapering, with a ring and ending in a peg foot.
The cupboard has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain. Note: There is a small gap between the doors at the bottom which can be seen in the last photo of the gallery.
Ebony is a black wood of very close grain and heavy in weight. It is used for inlaid decoration and especially for the dark tines in stringing.
