This is a charming antique rustic French food cupboard, comprising a single door, with a finely carved exterior, circa 1830, in good original condition. With a provincial design, the French cupboard is heavily carved in earlier 17th and 18th designs, including sequential foliate and floral carved stiles and rails, incorporating lunette carvings within a zig-zag and acanthus leaf design, with inset panels to the sides of the cupboard. The single door is decorated with a pierced fan-shape panel and retains its original steel working lever lock, with original working key and original hinges. The door opens to reveal three original pine shelves, with plenty of useful storage space. Below, the French food cupboard features a single working carved drawer, retaining its original metal drop handle, decorated with scribe lattice work. The base of the food cupboard is decorated with a scroll shaped frieze, featuring a carved cartouche, terminating on cabriole feet. The French food cupboard is constructed in the traditional manner with mortice and tenon joints, secured by dowel pegs, featuring its original backboards and floor.
