Victorian Mahogany 2 Door Serpentine Chiffonier / Sideboard / Server / Buffet
This chiffonier etc is a very good quality piece of furniture that dates to the Victorian period, and it's serpentine shape forms a pleasing aspect of the overall design.
It's nicely presented back is highlighted with carved and scrolled mouldings, and it's crowned with a decorative pediment, while a pair of scrolled columns support the fixed ledge.
The top of the base provides a useful area of surface space, and an oak lined and dovetailed drawer is discreetly located below, while carved brackets are located beneath the rounded front corners. The decoratively moulded inset panelled cupboard doors lead to a conveniently sized cupboard which is fitted with a pine shelf, and the right hand door is fitted with a lock, however there is no key present to work it.
The condition is generally good when you consider the sideboards age, although there are some age related marks, rubs, scuffs, dings, scratches, and dents as you would expect. The serpentine fronted plinth has damaged / missing veneer in the front left hand corner as well as both back corners, and both sides have some age related shrinkage cracks above the plinth. There is also a shrinkage crack across the left hand side of the back just above the ledge. The ledge itself has been re-attached to the 2 columns at some stage, subsequently it's 2 front corners have been filled in. Also the ledge does not sit perfectly flat, i.e it tilts upwards a bit.
There is some damage to the middle front bottom edge of the internal shelf, and the shelf is warped in the centre from front to back, therefore it's not perfectly flat / level in the centre. There are also some marks and stains inside the cupboard, and the key hole escutcheon is missing.
We have included 23 large pictures further down this page which show the item from pretty much every relevant angle, therefore it's sold as seen and as accurately described.
The height measures 66 inches.
The height to the surface area measures 35 1/2 inches.
The width measures 48 inches.
The depth measures 20 inches.
Please note that all measurements are the maximum overall sizes.
Please also note that our delivery driver will be alone, therefore he will require some assistance when carrying the item.
