Antique Pier Cabinets were first introduced in the Victorian period and was designed to sit between two bay windows with a pier mirror above. This was to let as much light into the room as possible and also display their finest decorative objects such as fine China. These antique cabinets were often in figured walnut or ebonized with gilt ormolu mounts and velvet lined on the shelves. They are very fine looking pieces of furniture, decorative and ideal for displaying objects, or also can make a lovely smaller bookcase. On rare occasions, you can see matching pairs, these would have been specially commissioned for the owner of a grand Victorian home. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
