Jacobean Revival linen press

Jacobean Revival linen press Jacobean Revival linen press

Antique or vintage Jacobean revival style carved linen press cupboard in pine, unsigned.  A heavy one piece construction of solid pine, screws, and wire nails in some areas; it may be a newer piece (late 19th c. or even early-mid 1900s) constructed with older 18th-19th c. materials. The doors are of mortise and tenon construction, and have been reinforced on the inside with plywood backing. It has latches on the left door at top and bottom as well as inside; measures about 48-3/8"h X 56.75"w X just over 24"d.  Imperfect, antique/vintage, pre-owned, used condition - rustic, distressed surface with remnants of old paint - there are dings, scratches, residue, some stray paint flecks, uneven finish in some areas. Doors have some damage and old repairs; right door does not shut completely and the key inside the door will not turn. Some loss to the carved molding and decoration, a repair near the center opening; the doors are very heavy and have been reinforced later with plywood backing on the inside to stabilize them. Hardware is replaced. Please see photos.
