Jacobean cupboard

A typical oak cupboard dating from the middle of the 17th century. The original is in the Geffry museum, London. This reproduction is a variation of that piece, altered in design to suit the client’s needs. The turnings on the drawer fronts are scalloped bottom-back and are in fact finger pulls.

The door stiles and rails are reeded, done with a scratch-stock with fret work and split turnings in the centre of the panels. Mouldings of the period dominate the top frieze area, incorporating dentil and brackets, hinges and escutcheon and were made in Wellington NZ. The finish is stain and French polish.
