Van Wyck corner cupboard

This early built-in corner cupboard, c.1735, was recently salvaged from the Van Wyck House parlor in Lloyd Harbor, NY.  It was the first house to be put on this harbor and boasted a 500 acre farm and a spectacular view.  The piece is in great condition, but the crown molding didn’t survive the extraction and could be custom made from a sample piece I saved.  The face measures approximately 58” wide and 7’8” tall and would need to be built into a corner with ample space.  The glass doors are original and measure 32” across and are 60” tall.  There are 5 shelves with ‘lollypops’ in tacked, and a beautiful ‘sun burst’ pattern made from curved wood pieces (not plaster).  It features a ‘tomb stone’ sliding bottom door. The photos of the back of the cupboard show its high quality wooden construction.

Cost: $12,500
