Antique Kidney / Peanut shaped tea / drinks cabinet


This rare and unusual kidney/peanut-shaped antique tea/drinks cabinet is offered in good vintage condition, complete with the original serving tray and featuring cabriole legs.

Constructed from solid exotic hardwood (believed to be mahogany), this cabinet also features intricate carvings and beading which are found around the entire piece, adding interest and giving the cabinet a 'colonial' look and feel.

The cabinet is surrounded by bevelled glass panes which not only look stylish but help illuminate the interior of the cabinet making it easier to locate and place items inside.

Although these cabinets were initially designed to store fine china and serve tea, as suggested by my pictures, they also make the perfect drinks cabinet too. Ideal for those with limited space and unable to accommodate regular-sized cocktail or gin cabinets.

Internally the cabinet can comfortably accommodate items (or bottles) up to 31.5cm tall.

The top of the cabinet features a generous-sized serving tray which seats neatly on top of the cabinet and is simply lifted off when in use, complete with original brass handles.

Given the age of this piece, it does have some signs of wear and tear as you would expect, such as minor scratches. It has been sympathetically and gently cleaned and then oiled to restore its lustre. The original hardware has been given a gentle clean so it retains its aged patina.

76.5cm tall
73.5cm wide
39cm deep (at deepest point)

This is an antique/old piece of furniture. This item has had a previous life and it has some minor imperfections commensurate with its age, along with expected 'wear and tear'.
