Hanging Cupboard with Elaborate Grain and Smoke Faux Finish

June 4, 2011 Antiques Auction

Lot #: 15

Price Realized: $373.75 ($325 hammer, plus 15% buyer's premium).

Rare Cupboard with Elaborate Grain and Smoke Painted Surface, Pennsylvania origin, 19th century, glass-doored cupboard with grain-painted tiger finish to front and grain-painted fan and wavy line design to side. Other side unpainted. Door decorated with yellow and gray smoke painting. Shelved interior with plate racks and spoon holders. Left side appears to have been cut at a later date to hang the cupboard in a corner, with the one side against a wall. This adjustment was made during the 19th century, as shown by the square-head nails along the top left edge. This piece was likely the top part of a two-piece example. Provenance: Recently found in a 19th century Ephrata, PA home. Left side of molding missing. Left foot cut and reattached. Paint wear. Dimensions: 29 3/4" x 14 3/8" x 46".
