Antique Neville Plantation Wooden "Country Cupboard"
Antique Neville Plantation Wooden "Country Cupboard" -- attractive, complete and in GREAT condition. (See HISTORY info below.)
This piece is in original antique condition and dates from the mid-1800s. It has period hardware present.
All of the unions, doors and shelves are AOK, although the old hinges on one door need some restoration work. Note the hand-crafting construction features and hand champfering throughout.
The interior of the cupboard shows obvious use through the years but is all as it should be. The top and other exterior features are attractively toned and weathered, as shown in the pictures. This cupboard -- along with a couple of others, which will be listed separately -- was removed from the loft of a Neville Plantation barn I renovated out near Port Hudson, LA. I have dusted it off but have not attempted to seriously clean it.
100% all original. Opens and closes JUST as it should, especially after the previously mentioned hinge work is completed -- a task the buyer will want to address. Nothing is missing. I am unsure of the type wood used in the construction.
MEASUREMENTS: 40" tall, 16" deep and 48" wide.
HISTORY: The barn in which this chest was found is on land which was once Neville Plantation adjacent to Port Hudson, very near the Civil War battle-siege site. Neville Plantation burned in the late 1920's and I speculate this piece hails from some era well before that time -- maybe even from the time of the Civil War siege.
VERY COLLECTIBLE or would make a great accent piece with any decor.
