A French walnut confiturier cabinet from the early 19th century, with single drawer over single door, molded panel and scalloped apron. Born in France during the politically dynamic early 19th century, this walnut confiturier (a small cupboard dedicated to storing the "confitures", jambs, jellies and preserves), features a rectangular top with rounded corners in the front), sitting above a single dovetailed drawer resting above a single door. This door, adorned with a sinuous molding and a recessed panel, opens thanks to a working lock and key to reveal inner shelves. Flanked with slightly canted accents on the side posts, the confiturier is raised on four legs, the front ones being scrolled and connected to one another through a scalloped apron. With its elegant lines and lovely patina, this early 19th century walnut confiturier will make for an excellent addition to any kitchen, living room, bedroom or hallway.
