American CT Country painted stepback cupboard 1750. This early American country cupboard was made in Connecticut in the mid eighteenth century. It was purchased from an estate in Glastonbury in the early 1960's. All original. This cupboard is as good as it gets for period country cupboard. It retains is old blue paint with red underwash. The door was made with two boards and held together with a wooden spline. Single board sides top and bottom all cut and made from the same wide board.The original wood latch is made from hard maple and has worn the top of the door down all most to point. There is wonderful wear on the top surface from use such as chopping herbs, vegetables and making bread. Measures 71 inches high, 37 and one half inches wide, 13 inches deep at the top, and 22 and one half inches deep at the bottom. The door measures 24 by 29 inches. The small size of this piece is quite rare. It has never been cut down it is original and one of the best cupboards we have ever had.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
