Painted Corner Cupboard
Eastern Shore of Virginia
Early 19th century – circa 1810
79″ T; 36″ W; 21″D
This diminutive corner cupboard is painted in the classic blue and white pattern of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. A some point this cupboard was over-painted with the dark red/brown that now remains only in the interior. It was scrapped to reveal the original surface. Hinges are original. Some loss in height due to wear. The backboards are secured with large rose head nails.
