English Liberty Style Arts and Crafts Oak Sideboard Cupboard
Liberty Style English Arts and Crafts Oak Sideboard Cupboard. Stunning design featuring quality hand hammered hardware including strap hinges, arched aprons with cut-out designs in the front, tapered posts supporting a dramatic overhanging top, carved panels in upper doors with rising sun behind a tree with carved snail on one trunk and a beetle on the other. A very pleasing form exhiting high quality details yet remaining a strong grounded form complemented by the ample quarter sawed oak grain. Excellent condition and patina. Color added to the top above the drawers. Impressed mark: "DESIGN 4769 over 2802 over 2" on the reverse. We purchased this piece locally and are still researching the maker.
