Antique Cylinder Cabinets are an unusual small cupboard that is Cylindrical in shape and usually has a marble top with a Walnut, Satin-birch or Mahogany base. These stunning cabinets have a concealed door and are finished all the way around so were designed to have a plant on top and placed in the centre of a room or hall way. They usually sit on a moulded, rounded plinth with a small turned wooden handle. Today they are mainly used as a useful little storage cabinet but having a lamp situated on top or a nice decorative ornament. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.

- 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.
