The antique music cabinet was originally made to store sheet music when home entertainment involved playing music using instruments such as the violin or piano. antique music cabinets are lovely pieces of antique furniture and can be the ideal practical storage for paperwork, papers or magazines. Quite often they will be in the design of a chest of drawers but the drawer fronts will be hinged, so they pull out and fall forward, giving you easy access to your paperwork. They were mainly built in the Victorian and Edwardian periods in Mahogany and Walnut or in rare occasions in Rosewood. They are not only very pretty pieces of furniture but also very practical and this is why they are popular pieces to have in your home.  Here at Antiques world we do get very beautiful examples for sale and you can see our current selection available here on our cupboards and cabinets page.
