Victorian Mahogany Purdonium cum Side or Bedside Cabinet
A handsome Victorian mahogany piece from around 1870-90 and in very good condition, with shaped & moulded up-stand to a projecting top on neo-classical cornice of dentils, supported on stepped brackets, with heavily-panelled door, hinged at the bottom and with decorative brass drop-handle & plate, secured on a brass spring-catch and opening to reveal a compartment with single mid-shelf, over the matching lower cabinet, with fluted side panels and decorative brass drop-handles & plates to either side, the front also hinged and opening to reveal the old coal scuttle but now missing the original tin liner, on a carved plinth with egg & dart moulding on bracket feet, this terrific purdonium will impress in any elegantly-furnished living- or bedroom and will fully deserve the appreciative attention of your guests.
O/All Width at Top 42cm x Depth 37.75cm (16.5" x 14.75")

This is a Victorian piece dating to the second half of the 19thC, so you may expect the mature character & patina that only develops with considerable age but otherwise it's in very good, clean & sound condition, ready to use in your home.
