We are pleased to come back from a wonderful house call in the sister city
of Bangor, Maine. We were fortunate enough to bring home this tiger sawn
oak china closet that has sit in this home since 1903 the granddaughter believed.
She is pretty accurate as far as I can tell. This china closet is better
than usual being all tiger sawn oak construction, triple mirror glass back,
four cabriole legs that end in claw feet, beautiful egg and dart dentil
molding and a beautiful north wind carving in the center of the backsplash.
The cabinet has three shelves inside with double groove plate rails. The
cabinet has the original key and the original finish doesn't get much better
than this. The overall size is 45 inches across the back, 27 inches wide
across the two posts, 16.5 inches deep, 64 inches high to the top of the
cabinet case and 73 inches high to the top of the 9 inch backsplash. At one
time someone must have spilled an oil lamp causing some finish loss on the very top, but I
only noticed as I stood up on a chair, you can not see it standing in front of it. We could take the backsplash off
and likely sell it for $300 itself. The glass is original and is wavy.
The shelves are 13.5 inches deep. Shipping starts at $385 for a driveway
delivery in our normal area. Please contact us prior to purchase as
shipping can increase depending on your location.
