victorian scrap decorated cupboard




Item Ref


A most unusual and charming piece of Victoriana.
Found in Scotland and carefully cleaned to reveal the beautiful scrap decoration,this pine cupboard needs to find a special home.
It was probably used in a nursery and decorated with an amazing collection of Victorian scraps.
There is a lake with ducks, various garden settings with roses and other flowers, garlands teaming with fairies , animals, birds and insects, children and other figures, borders and bouquets.
Some of the scraps are coloured, some are black and gilt, some of them unrecognizable.
All of the decorated parts have retained the original varnish, which has aged into a rather "bubbly / crocodile skin" effect finish, often found on pieces which have been close to an open fire.
The cupboard is fitted with 3 fixed shelves.
There are small parts of top beading and plinth missing.
If needed , we can provide more photos, as the ones provided really do not do this cupboard justice.
Dimensions: 22" 559mm wide
13 3/4" 349mm deep
50 1/2" 1283mm high
11 1/4" 286mm inside
