Tiger Maple Step-Back Cupboard


An spectacular tiger maple step-back cupboard. The cupboard has two plank doors on top that open onto three fixed shelves, and a single plank door below. Except for the backboards, which are made of poplar, the entire cupboard is constructed of tiger maple. Even the shelves are tiger maple! The cupboard sports a magnificent rich color, and the doors, in particular, scream “tiger”, whether open or closed. The cupboard is in very good condition considering its age, the only imperfections of note being a repaired crack in the lower door and minor insect damage to one back foot, (not active). The hinges have been replaced. Mid-19th century, probably Ohio.
