I picked up this quality piece of furniture on a recent sourcing trip to France.
This is a striking piece of kitchen furniture that is both useful and pleasing to the eye!
It is solid oak with intricate carved detail on each door. The design is typical of the early 20th century with a distinctive art deco feel to it.
There are two doors to the base and three to the upper section, with a central frosted glass door. There are two drawers to the base unit and this has an oak top. The back area, between the base and upper section, has its original mirrored panel.
The piece is in very good antique condition. There are some signs of age as one would expect in a piece of furniture of this age, but there are no major problems - I’d say the age adds to the antique (shabby) chic feel of the piece.

All of my furniture is fully restored and upcycled to the very highest standards. I am a master craftsman, having been in the decorating trade for 40 years. The process begins with meticulous preparation; this includes degreasing to remove the build up of years of wax and general grime.
My preparation incorporates both the interiors and exteriors – sometimes the interior requires as much work as the exterior (a fact that is overlooked by many upcyclers)!
This piece was sanded and cleaned and the cupboard interior walls have been covered with wallpaper of French wine labels (see pictures). The interior wooden surfaces have been stained.
The exterior was primed with an oil based primer and background colour applied (Farrow and Ball Skimming Stone).
Each door has been painted a light green (a bespoke pale green mix produced using Farrow and Ball paints, stainer and tints) .
Wax was then applied to achieve the antique chic finish. The furniture was then protected with two coats of quality satin varnish to provide a durable but sympathetic finish.
