Description:

Shaker Pine Cupboard Over Four Drawers, Mount Lebanon, New York, c. 1830, hinged door over molded recessed panel opening to three shelves above four graduated drawers with wooden pulls, with an applied dovetailed bracketed base, old refinish, (minor imperfections), ht. 74 1/4, wd. 33, dp. 16 1/4 in.

Literature: Gather Up the Fragments, p. 159.

This unusual piece consists of a fully finished case of drawers with single plank sides extending upwards to a cupboard framed on top. Like Lot 58 in this sale, this piece has an applied dovetailed base. Traces of yellow ochre paint remain, although the piece appears to have been refinished long ago. This cupboard over drawers seems to have barely escaped annihilation. A large burn mark is visible on the right side. A lamp or candle may have tipped over and briefly been in contact with the case side.

Estimate $8,000-12,000

Couple shrinkage cracks, abrasions, burn mark mid-way up the right side of the case.
