An antique harness cupboard is a cupboard that was originally used for holding and storing horse and harnesses equipment. Harness cupboards usually have wooden pegs in the top section and drawers below. They are very useful pieces of antique furniture and they are still used today as kitchen cupboards or hall cupboards, they are used for hanging coats and storing away shoes. As they were built mainly in the 17th and 18th century, they are quote primitive in their construction, made from solid Oak, with pegged dowels and old clout nails.  also the fittings are usually made from Iron, with H hinges and rustic handles. They always come with beautiful charm and character from years of use, along with a beautiful patina.  Here on antiques world we do get some beautiful examples for sale and you can see our current selection here on our cupboards section of our website. We also do get some lovely country oak pieces that would compliment perfectly, full of lovely charm and character.
