English Cabinet Circa 1920's remake

So here is my latest remake. I just did my research on this piece that I knew was English, but I had no other info until this evening.

This is an English, circa 1920's mahogany cabinet. The distinguishing characteristics are the cabriole legs, claw and ball feet, fabric lined back and beautiful cornice work on the front. The key is so tiny! I thought it was a remake and then I found others on the internet with the same tiny key!

I painted it in Versaille, applied dark wax and distressed it. The hardest part was taping the front prior to painting! I love it and I am excited to put it up for sale. See the before and after photos of this piece!

Finished and ready for sale!

An upclose photo of the lock that says ENGLISH MADE. There is other engraving on it,but I can't seem to make it out.

Check out those legs and feet! Classic
