Corner Cupboard with Striking Decoration (SOLD)

Corner Cupboard with Striking Decoration (SOLD)

Built on a smaller scale than many corner cupboards, the bold & folksy red and black decoration make this piece very desirable.  Note the dentil molding & the cut-out base, early features on a circa 1830’s cupboard. From a private Pennsylvania collection, this cupboard is fresh to the marketplace not having been offered publicly before.
