This is an unusual cabinet or cupboard which dates to the late 1800s.

I have to admit that I am unsure where it was made, it has an Oriental looking glass panel to the top but also has the feel and look of a piece made in India, it's a bit of a mystery.

It is made of a hardwood which looks like teak.

The cabinet is tall and fairly narrow and would be ideal for an alcove or a room with limited space. It could be used as a linen cupboard or larder, or perhaps as an alternative to a traditional wardrobe.

The base has double panelled doors set under two spacious drawers. The tops of the doors are fitted with embossed dark blue glass and the doors open to reveal a useful fixed shelf for storage.

The top of the cabinet has a single mirrored door to the centre and a single fixed interior shelf, above this is a narrow decorated glass panel depicting Oriental looking flowers.

The wood has a waxed finish which has a nice sheen.


The cabinet is in generally good structural condition with many small marks of age and use to the wood. One side panel has some streaks where the finish has faded, it was probably stood near a window for some time.

The lock to the top door is missing, the gap left behind has been filled with wood.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
