Enigma definition: A person, object, or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand. This cupboard is just that… definitely puzzling and mysterious!! And I sure wish it could talk because I bet it has some GREAT stories to share!! Something tells me it’s seen a few things and has had quite an interesting history. It is a one-piece cabinet comprised of oak with a top and bottom section and an open center section. The doors have carvings with (what we believe are) dates back to the 1600’s. The door fronts remind me of vintage livery cupboards… they are nostalgic and quite mystifying!! We don’t believe the whole cupboard is quite the same age, hence, more mystery! We believe the body or frame of the cupboard is Early 1900’s, possibly earlier, and was made from reclaimed lumber or someone possibly took pieces of an old cabinet and repurposed it. The top section is constructed with mortise & tenon joints (no nails!), the inner top & base cabinets each enclose a single adjustable wood shelf with aged wood peg brackets, and stepped siderails or shelf supports. Both the top and lower door fronts bear enigmatic brass armoire hinges, intricately hand carved details including four baluster-turned spindles, and faux escutcheons with a keyhole. They’re fascinating!! We added magnetic latches behind the doors as they would not stay closed. Those can easily be removed for originality if you prefer. Although it is Spanish Colonial Revival it bears an Artes De Mexico style and feel as well. The whole cabinet has an all-over fabulous rustic or distressed patina… we call that “perfectly imperfect!” …. and we think this cupboard is just that! Lots of extra character and additional vintage beauty! Plus, it is so versatile it could be used in a bedroom, dining area, in the study or den, kitchen, or living room. And I can see it making the BEST dry bar around. So many possibilities, so much enigma, and SO much intriguing history. This one is a no-brainer…You NEED to make it yours!!!!
