Big Early Pegged 16 Pane Cherry Corner Cupboard From Burke County North Carolina For Sale

Big Early Pegged 16 Pane Cherry Corner Cupboard From Burke County North Carolina

Old corner cupboard, most likely from burke county North Carolina, made from cherry and yellow pine secondary wood. This is a BIG cupboard, it may not look it in the pics, and it truly is not that tall, it stands easily in my 8 foot ceiling, However, it is broader, (wider), and deeper than it may appear, that is where theBIG comes in, and yet the proportions are still quite nice. Not boxy looking at all. I think it has lost possibly an inch or two of the feet. the lower skirt seems shallow, and low to the ground, maybe it was in a damp basement years back, or something, and they trimmed it off, i am not sure, but i would bet it has lost some height, an inch or two would be my guess.This is structurally sound and solid, heavy as all get out, and has been in my dining room since the day i bought it, years ago. It will hold a whole lot of china, or pottery or what have you, makes a good selling cupboard, for showing smalls off in. Other than the feet loss, the cupboard may be missing 2 small sections of the top moulding, the left and right pieces, maybe would have been 5 or 6 inches each, they miter with the main top moulding. there are some minor damage to some of the moulding between the panes, study the pictures, i got a closeup of the main area. these are old mellow, minor issues, they blend in and dont stand out, and catch the eye, or anything, and are cosmetic in nature, not detrimental to the structural function, etc.that's about it, and some dings here and there, typical old cupboard minor imperfections, ask if you want more detail. this cupboard features solid cherry exterior, yellow pine shelving and back, very early saw marks, hand planed lumber, early square nails, pegged doors, early wavy glass panes, either applied cock beading, or scribed cock beading, or some combination of the two, on the stile workaround and framing the area where both pairs of doors hang, and beadingaround the lower panels on bottom doors. much detail does not show upwell in those pictures, but they were the best i was able to take. It also has a nice beaded, or reeded,bellyband, that's what i call it, the section between the top and bottom doors. It is mostly all original, other than maybe hardware, or minus a lock or two, may have had a cupboard door latch added, etc, minor changes. there is wallpaper in the backof the top section only, NO PAINT, just wallpaper, and i think it would remove easily enough. i kind of liked it that way, and it helped LIghten up the contents, so to speak. i have sold a lot of good little items out of it, it helps to show them well.

Measures88 inches to the tallest point,almost 55inches wide, that measurement is to the very widest point, the corner that is against the wall, the most outer corner part, and is about 24 inches deep, that measurement is just to the inside of the back center board, so it would take a good bit deeper corner to accomodate it's depth, several more inches. to sum it up, you need a pretty good sized corner for this, but it is a handsome piece, and is an early one, as well.

This came out of burke county where i live, and i feel like it is a fairly local or at least a southern made piece. the lady who had it for years was an old time picker, years before everyone was saying pickers, and most wouldn t know what it meant. Anyway, story has it she bought mostly locally,so i think it is.

any questions or comments, just message me, i will try to help.
