This 19th-century oak confiturier cabinet from Normandy, is an excellent display of the fine craftsmanship of regional French woodworkers of the 1800s. The thick molding to the door, with its intricate floral bush at the top, adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the functional, “everyday” piece. The functioning lock and key ensure the security of whatever treasures you may choose to store within, while the full-length shelf provides ample room for storage. Pieces such as this were originally used to store the household “confitures” (fruit preserves, jams, or jellies). They are recognizable by their narrow bodies, single door, and lack of upper section. The arbalete apron and four blocked feet add to the beauty and authenticity of this cabinet, while the quarter-round molding on top serves as the perfect finishing touch. Overall, this 19th century French confiturier from Normandy is sure to be treasured for many years to come.
