antique period pine stacking storage cupboard




Item Ref



A rare and early pine stacking cupboard or deed safe, usually found in solicitor's or dignitary's offices for safe keeping of documents and deeds. Sometimes also called a campaign chest, but unlikely it was used for that purpose..
The idea is to be able to grab the cupboard sections and take to safety when needed, maybe in the case of fire or flood.
Not often found complete, as the cupboard sections can easily be separated over time.
This is a mid 19th century example, heavy and impressive, featuring an ingenious rounded moulded cornice, finely moulded fielded panelled doors and intricate mouldings.
Big iron and pewter carrying handles on each section, original plinthed base.
Dove tailed construction throughout, a very well constructed piece indeed.
The cupboard is in excellent condition, no damage, no worm.
Every section has the original iron lozenge shaped escutcheon, a working lock and key and is fitted with one shelf, removable.
Stripped and hand waxed for protection.
Easy for access and to transport as it separates into the three sections.
Very happy to have found this gem....useful in lounge, kitchen, office etc.
