Antique English Mahogany Curio Cabinet

Antique English Mahogany Display or Curio Cabinet, from a Luxury Store

Antique English Mahogany Curio Cabinet
Antique English Display Cabinet or Curio Cabinet, that was most likely used in a Luxury Department Store and probably around the turn-of-the-century. I mention luxury, because of the unusual attention to detail, in which this display cabinet was built. Constructed of high-quality Caribbean mahogany, also known as Swietenia macrophylla. The difference between genuine mahogany, called Swietenia, are the beautiful straight graining of the wood and the warm brown natural tones. Today, most new furniture, is made from African Sapele, which tends to have a very busy grain pattern and an off orange-reddish color. This particular antique English display cabinet, or curio cabinet has lived a sheltered life and required minimal restoration, to bring it back to life. The finish appears to be original and enjoys a beautiful original patina. Our Old Plank upholstery department, just recovered both bottom floors, in a natural linen and are easily changed if you prefer a different material or possibly mirror?
