Scroll down for MORE PHOTOS!
Please note all the brass knobs have, since the photos were taken, been replaced with wooden turned knobs. However we do still have the ones pictured and can refit them if required.
This early 19th century cupboard on chest separates into two sections: Upper and lower. It is an exceptionally heavy piece, Each section weighs around nine stone ((125 lbs.). It is made of solid oak throughout with the exception of the drawer liners and floors which are respectively made from pine and fruitwood.
It measures: 53" wide. 72" high and 22" deep overall. (135 cms. w 183 cms. h 56" cms. d.).
The cupboard has an ample 19" internal depth for clothes hangers and has a drop of 51" - the well of the cupboard behind the three dummy drawers providing this extra height.
The quality and character of this piece is self evident from the photos but it is also, due to the unusual internal depth -from front to back, eminently suitable for contemporary use.
There is no reason why this country oak cupboard, which is about two hundred years old, shouldn't endure for hundreds of years to come - well beyond our lifetimes.
