Product Description

This is a pretty much untouched, original as-found unbelievable Eastlake incise carved mirror backed spindle galleried top ICEBOX! Yes, it’s an icebox. Even though it looks like a sideboard, this is a two-door icebox with a mirror buffet back, that came out of a really nice home. I had one of these about 22 years ago, and this is only the third one I’ve had in my 43 years in this business. Made of walnut and in its original finish, it has the original brass Victorian embossed hardware doorknobs, and even the faucet is original. The faucet will have to be re-soldered so it doesn’t drip or leak. When opened, you can see the original zinc lining that just needs to be buffed up. It has the water tanks, the shelves, and just about everything except the original key. The top cover lifts up and you put the ice in, and there is a water faucet right in the icebox. It must have been a marvel in the 1870s or ‘80s when it was built? Unfortunately someone has ripped the label off the back, and I don’t know the original manufacturer. The top has a stick and ball gallery, incise carved panels, three-quarter inch beveled rectangular mirror in the center, and even the little tiny finials in the top. The dowels fit just a bit funny, so I’m not sure if they are original. If you’re looking for a rare piece, look no further. There is no rot, no bad panels, and basically looks unused. The overall size is 37 inches wide on the base, 21 inches deep, and 34 inches high. The top is 31 inches high to the top of the finial, so overall it would be 65 inches tall. The shelves are 5.5 inches deep. This is truly a great investment piece.
