GEORGE III FLAME MAHOGANY LARGE BREAKFRONT SIDEBOARD / SERVERDescription:
*This large sideboard is a very good quality piece of antique furniture that dates to the George III period, and it will make a characteristic addition to any room or large hallway.
*Its very substantial and partly made from solid mahogany which is finished with excellent flame mahogany veneers, and the sizable breakfront top is fitted with a flame mahogany fronted return.
*The door and all 3 drawers are fitted with a lock, and 1 key works the 2 centre drawers while the other key works the cupboard and right hand drawer locks.
*The middle bottom drawer is fitted with fixed partitions, while the partitions at the bottom of the deep right hand drawer are removable.
*All 3 drawers have solid oak linings, and 2 have quality dovetailed joints.
*Well turned solid mahogany knobs are fitted to the door and 2 of the drawers, and superbly turned and reeded solid mahogany legs provide a hugely pleasing means of support.
*The condition is generally good when you consider the sideboards age, however there are age related marks of use as you would expect, including rubs, scuffs, dings and dents here and there. There are marks, stains and shallow scratches in the top, and there are some dents across the front edges of the top as well as a chip in the front left hand edge.
A lot / if not most of the lengths of moulding are missing from across the lower front and side edges, and theres quite a lot of damage / missing pieces of cockbrading from around the outside edges of the door and drawer fronts.
Theres an age related shrinkage crack down the front of the door, and the same applies across the cupboard floor and across the bottom of the top centre drawer. The bottom centre drawer was originally baize lined, and the lining has predominantly been removed but remnants of it untidily remain in places.
Theres damage to the framework above the right hand drawer, and there are some dings and dents around the edges of the knobs and legs.
