Large carved oak cupboard (or beeldenkast), Flemish from the late 17th century. Originally used to store linens in a bedroom. Two drawers in the middle with wooden knobs and two larger cupboard doors below with shelving inside. Two darker colored wood bun feet on the front and block feet on the back. Carved Putti flank the top, with a lion face and carved fruits below each. Carved acanthus leaves adorn the plinth at the top. There is geometric beading on all cupboard door and drawers. Two original keys included. This piece comes in two pieces. Color is rich. A name seems to have been carved on the side: "LVDL," which could be the surname "Ludl."
Has some wear and splitting due to age on the left top door, but cupboard is still fully functional and the splitting does not deter from its overall beauty. Doors open, close, and lock smoothly. It measures 25 1/8 x 63 7/8 x 57 1/4 inches and the estimated weight is 350 lbs.
