Original Robin Egg Blue Pie Cupboard From The Midwest 1870-1880

This wonderful folk art style cupboard is a grand example of color and style from the 19th century. This style of cupboard was originally made for bread or pies to be stored or to cool down after coming out of a hot oven. This style of cupboard was likely a pantry or cupboard used for food or grain storage in the kitchen. The color of the cupboard is a Robyns egg blue, and features wonderful patina.

It has small original screens and cut outs on the top sides of the cupboard. The drawers of this cupboard are mortised and use square nail construction. This piece is probably from a Farmhouse in Pennsylvania- Sold through East Meets West Antiques

Below we have a mid 19th Century American Painted Tabletop Set of Drawers.  This handsome set of drawers has their original brass knobs and red-brown stain, and a later vibrant aqua blue paint. Each of the 13 drawers is marked with a Roman numeral, which corresponds to an etched Roman numeral in each slot. Excellent cabinetwork with dove-tail construction throughout; American circa 1840. Sold through M. Finkel & Daughter
