Antique Corner Cupboards are one of those useful pieces of antique furniture that you can use to utilise those awkward corners in room, when you need additional storage. They are either wall hanging or floor standing and come in solid woods like Oak, Mahogany or more rare examples in Rosewood and Burr Walnut. Antique corner cupboards were first seen in the early Georgian period, in Oak with features like dental moulding, figured doors with cross-banding and raised fielded panels. The interiors always had shaped shelves, often with their original paint and stand on shaped bracket feet if floor standing. Towards the later 18th Century, new features were introduced like the bow front antique corner cabinet with unusual inlay detailing in a rich Mahogany, a truly impressive design. The scrolled swan neck pediment with decorative brass eagle centrepiece or finial and brass H hinges were fitted on the doors, along with Rocco key escutcheons. Glazed doors were fitted with splendid astragal glazing bars to display drinking vessels and fine china. In the Victorian and Edwardian periods, new decorative shapes were made like the unusual Serpentine glazed corner cabinets with Grecian moulded edge and unique pear drop carved frieze. The corners were often canted with blind fretwork carvings, they were made to impress!

- Simon Knight,
I reasonately purchased an Edwardian mahogany sheet music cabinet from James and have to say it is even better than the photographs. I have asked him to find a console table which will blend with the cabinet and feel confident that in time the right piece will be found.
Hi James,Just letting you know that the cabinet arrived safe and soundly, and is absolutely fantastic. Thank you so very much for being so accommodating and kind, I really appreciate it. Hopefully once I have finished my Masters I will be cashed up again and will definitely visit your website.Kind regards,Stewart
HiEverything has arrived safely and items are fab, thank you. The two chaps placed the cabinet upstairs without any trouble. Thanks again Pamela
