Chippendale Country Cupboard
This terrific cupboard really makes a statement, boasting three top drawers over six graduating bottom drawers and one center door. It sits atop a nice bracket base and is adorned in an old red painted surface. Although sold to me as an apothecary cabinet, I feel that it is most likely the base of a step-back cupboard. But it is an attractive and functional piece of country Chippendale furniture, offering lots of storage. It appears to be all original with the exception of the top board, which I believe is a later replacement. There once was a very unique locking mechanism that locked all of the drawers within the back side of the cupboard, now not functional. Also, there is no key for the door. The construction is mortise, dovetailed, and square nails. Measuring 45 1/2" wide by 35" tall by 18" deep. A lovely country piece!
