This massive and magnificent Arts & Crafts era Mission Oak 72-bottle wine cabinet may quite possibly be one of a kind and comes from the Napa Valley in California. It has been in dry storage for many years and has never been subject to water, insect, fire or mildew damage. There is a factory- drilled bolt hole at each corner of the interior floor deck, apparently to secure the cabinet to the floor in the event of earthquakes. The cabinet dates to around 1905 and is solidly constructed of the finest quarter-sawn white oak solids with a very thick, tiger oak veneer top. It has 6 adjustable interior shelves of solid oak that pull out and will hold 12 bottles on each shelf.7 exterior raised panels (including the fully finished back), and 2 screened doors with solid brass or bronze grills. It contains all of its original copper patinated solid brass/bronze hardware - hinges, locks and screens. The cabinet has a locking door (non-original but operating key) and the copper plated brass hasp also appears to be factory. The doors open and close correctly and the shelves all slide in and out. Measures 54" Long, 36" deep and 40 ½ tall. The shelves are 44" long x 31" deep. I have placed 4 concealed nylon ball casters to make it easy to move around and to clean under without damaging the floor surface. These casters can be either temporary or permanent and they are not visible. This is the only modification to the cabinet. The fine Craftsman cabinet is of superb craftsmanship and in excellent condition. There is an old but correct and very tight 2 repair to the bottom face of the front left door at the lower mortise lock.
There also appears to be a nearly indistinguishable 1" x 5" patch to the veneer on one of the raised panels -- probably a factory repair, called a "Dutchman", when built. This patch is barely perceptible (if perceptible at all), and a 2 piece of beading chipped on the back, which is not noticeable. There is a 1" x 1/4" factory knot patch on the top veneer. Aside from that the cabinet is pristine and an extremely rare showcase for your fine wine collection and would make a great kitchen island.We are 2 hours south of Charlotte, NC, 1 hour north of Augusta, GA, 1 hour west of Columbia, SC and 3 hours west of Atlanta. Shipper will be able to pull right up to cabinet and it will be very easy to load with at least 2 people. Weight is estimated at 325 pounds including the removable shelves. I have been in the furniture restoration business for 45 years and strive to provide honest and accurate descriptions. This is a 100+ year old item and is in excellent condition but is not perfect.
