SOLD! Antique Hand Carved 17th Century Jacobean Style Victorian Court Cupboard
Antique hand carved Jacobean style court cupboard dating from Victorian period.
A handsome piece of history, the kind of furniture seen in stately homes. Has exquisite hand carving over all the panels and distinctive thumb-moulding round the edges, characteristic of the era.

The oak is very dark, almost ebony in patina.
