Antique Colonial Anglo Indian or Oriental Kitchen Larder Cupboard
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.
top cupboard- top shelf 48cms high, lower shelf 29cms high, shelf depth 28cms, shelf width 82cms wide.

The measurements are taken at the widest points and the cabinet is one solid piece.
