This Art Deco cabinet has glass beading in a typical Art Deco Sunburst pattern. It has two glass shelves and is set on Queen Anne legs. It comes with a working brass lock and key.
This cabinet has been stripped down, cleaned, sanded, and cleaned again. This ensures the surface has a good key for the paint to adhere to. The hinges and escutcheon are brass.
This could be used for glasses, and the shelves are far enough apart to also take bottles as well. It could also be used for shoes, perfume, towels, or linen. As with most of the glass cabinets, I refinish it is not very deep so would sit nicely in a narrow hallway, or anywhere where space is tight.
It was painted, both inside and outside, so when opened it looks as beautiful on the inside as it does on the outside. I chose an eggshell by Little Greene called Drift which is a very dark l grey almost black with moss green undertones. It was formulated to resist moisture, staining, and general wear and tear, Intelligent Eggshell has a tough yet subtle finish and is a superb paint for woodwork. It has a beautiful subtle sheen.
The back has been finished in a beautiful Japanese-inspired fabric that depicts cranes and blossoms on a mottled turquoise and grey background. The colours are intense and bright to make it stand out.
As with all vintage or antique furniture, there may be some wear and tear but this only enhances the look. As with all glass cabinets, there is the occasional scratch on the glass but nothing obvious.
