I just bought this hutch at a garage sale ($75). I'm going to use it in my house and I don't feel that it is very valuable because the fancy carving is simply glued on but it does have some older features (hand cut dovetailing?, old style stick and groove shelf adjustments, skeleton key locks).
Just for my own interest, does anyone have a feel for date and or origin of manufacture?
So, you do not have the top or one of the bottom drawers? Are we seeing AS IS? Just curious...not that I have found anything of significance yet.
See new complete photo - it is all together.
Those carved things are called "appliques" and have been around since the early 1700s. Originally, they were hand cut.
The dowel pegs on top indicate that something is missing, perhaps a marble top?
You show a carving of an Oriental man with a keyhole, but that part isn't shown on the overall picture; where is it?
Yes, and it looks like that man was attached to a cupboard/cabinet door? Please, do tell?
It was obviously a functional piece for the previous owner, with the EXTRA BLANKETS label on the door!
See photo of totally assembled piece. We had to remove the top to move it and when we did that, the doors came off because they were pin hinged up in to it.
Wood appears to be Asian white hickory.
I like your horse. "Spots" would be a good name! :)
Looking at it a second time your item is "married", two different pieces that fit together, but the patterns are wrong...what goes?
NOW THAT is a piece of furniture! It makes so much more sense now.
That's a beauty!
Upper section with heads and flowers doesn't match the lower section. Rosettes in the corners don't match. Reeding (short vertical grooves/lines) doesn't match either. The design on the lower door panels look nothing like the upper door panels. Although it looks like one unit it is actually two.
