antique pine secretaire style storage cupboard 1850




Item Ref



A most unusual and decorative pine storage cupboard or small size armoire, made to resemble a Continental Regency secretaire, commonly known as a 'Blender',
( translated ' blinder or dazzler' ) ie to represent something it is not!
This cupboard is very well constructed, built from first grade Scandinavian pine, dating from the early to mid 19th century. Usually a piece of furniture supplied to the bourgeois households, ie not rural pine..
Although the front looks very much like a secretaire, it is in fact a single door cupboard, fitted inside with a ladder system, allowing various options for shelving.
It also has a facility for a rail if needed.
The decorative detail is quite unique, I presume Louis Phillipe style, with poetic licence, half turned pillars, turrets , two applied carved mouldings and a central torchere plaque. Original lock, key and escutcheons.
Very clean to use.
It was found in original grained mahogany finish, but has been given a new, more contemporary touch, 'Pavillion Grey', Farrow and Ball.
1010mm wide
1800mm high
580mm deep
