Oak Livery Cupboard of Architectural Form
An oak livery cupboard modified to serve as a television cabinet. Possessing strong architectural elements such as a break-fronted form, fluted pilasters topped with Ionic capitals, and quarter-columns flanking the projecting sections of the base. The central pilaster has been cut and the end pilasters have also been cut and double-hinged so that the upper section opens completely and the doors fold back. This was done so the piece could hold a television, although it would also work nicely to conceal a bar. Good color and patina.
