Shell top Corner Cupboard
 
Shell top Corner Cupboard

This Cupboard is a replica of the Rose House Cupboard built in Northford, CT. in 1750, and since at least the 1930's at the Yale University Art Gallery, with two exceptions - there is no original shell in the top, it has a smooth carved out dome with large rosette placed in the center. This cupboard deserved a carved shell top, and two more rosettes on the angled pilasters. The heart in the door is original to the cupboard and certainly unique. 2000.
