Pair of Edwardian Satinwood Display Cabinets
Fully understand the difference between, formal English restraint and snappy razzmatazz?
Pair of Sheraton revival, Edwardian, satinwood, bow front, display or pier cabinets. Of small proportions.
Note: For the easily excitable. One cabinet with a faint stamp to the underside reads “KENSINGTON”, could suggest it’s an inventory stamp for Kensington Palace (although it is usually accompanied by a date or crown).
Good original flavour and rich colour. Close inspection suggest some sympathetic reviving of the finish and maintenance to have taken place at some point. A number of small chips to the veneer here and there (see photos). One or two loose slithers of veneer also. Some mild warping of the doors (see photo). Two replaced escutcheons. No key. One replaced glass door panel, all other glass is the original float glass and a feature in itself.
Shelves, although well executed, could be later (shelf bearers are). Suggesting the cabinets to be originally designed to display a particular, large pair of vases or other. Up for discussion.
