Continental Carved Oak Cabinet, probably Italy, 18th century, top with bullnose edge, single door with two step-raised panels set in frame decorated with alternating carved ovals and rectangles, interior with three fixed shelves, paneled sides with surround moldings, set on stepped base on low bun feet, ht. 45 1/2, wd. 24, dp. 11 1/2 in.

Literature: This lot, and others from the same collection, are contextualized in Imagining Ichabod: My Journey Into 18th-Century America Through History, Food, and a Georgian House, by Paula Bennett, Bauer and Dean: New York, 2016. Imagining Ichabod is described as a "warm, personal account of life in an eighteenth-century house and the search for its first inhabitants... [which offers] a fascinating glimpse into [the United States'] colonial period and its years as a fledgling republic."
Estimate $300-500
