C19th Italian Pedestal Cupboard
An elegant early 19th century walnut trapezoid pedestal cupboard, although being of Italian origin this piece shares the characteristics of French Empire furniture being of Neoclassical architectural form, the square inset Carrara marble top within a deep moulded edge, over a single frieze drawer above a door flanked by running acanthus leaf carving terminating in graceful scroll ‘grips’ to each side of the cabinet, finished with a bold concave moulded base, raised on small block feet. The door opens to reveal a characteristically rather raw, unfinished interior, typical of Italian furniture. In lovely original condition, circa 1820
