Antique Credenza

The antique credenza is a fine quality piece of antique furniture in the form of a sideboard or cupboard that was fashionable during the Victorian period. They were only built by the best Victorian master craftsmen as they were detailed with fine veneers and beautifully figured woods for clients who would have been wealthy and wanted a piece of furniture to impress.  Decorations such as marquetry, parquetry, figured burr walnut, inlay, brass decorations, marble tops and mirror backs were used in the construction.
