This Gothic revival hutch piece begs a lot of questions. Some will remain unknown, but we’ll do our best. First, take a broad, sweeping overview and lets all just agree this cabinet is beyond amazing. Even if medieval neo-goth and emo aren’t your thing, you must appreciate the solid mahogany construction, dovetail joinery and attention to detail. To the best of our knowledge, this piece appears to be American made Neo Gothic / Gothic Revival from the 1960s or 1970s. Ornate brass hinge and pull accented cabinet door frames outline an interior of lattice giltwood over burgundy / gold textile. Leather “windows” frame the textile on the top and bottom. Directly beneath is a single drawer with large, oxidized rivets that secure a dragon motif crest dyed into a thick scroll of leather. Brass medallions punctuate each side of the drawer. The designer was also compelled to hang a wood pestle plumb bob by a chain on the underside the cabinet flanked by decorative, curved metal braces. We’re not sure why it’s there, but it makes a statement. The legs are painted with staggered bands of gold and red between natural bands of finish.
If all this isn’t cool enough, the Gothic revival hutch interior is stained in crimson. This color is perfect for cinematically displaying your potions, tinctures, jars of formaldehyde or shrunken heads.
No pressboard on this piece. The majority is solid mahogany with solid pine on the underside of the cabinet. Excellent overall condition with only minor imperfections on the tabletop section.
