A superb rare pair of mid 18th century (circa 1760) mahogany Chippendale pedestal cabinets of exceptional colour - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CEN BE VIEWED BELOW:
This pair of pedestal cabinets each consist of a solid mahogany top with moulded edge leading down to a door (with key) with central recessed panel and finely carved applied decoration in the Rococo style.
To either side of the doors a pilaster in the form of a column with carved capital to the top and carved plinth below, the doors opening to reveal a shelf divide in one and two sliding trays in the other.
The cabinets are supported on four superbly acanthus carved ogee feet to the front and rear.
This pair of cabinets are in very good condition for age, are of stable construction and can go straight into a home – they could be used for many purposes, as bedside cabinets or in a living room or hall and would also make great pedestals for lamps or busts.
