History of Antique Storage Cupboards with Unique Vintage Style
The earliest record of storage cupboards being used dates back to the 17th century. The first of its kind is an English cabinet that has a stand and is fitted with multiple drawers, compartments, and a cupboard. Other decorative details were also added over the years to showcase the intricate craftsmanship that goes into the making of each vintage cupboard.
By the 18h century, mahogany cupboards started to make their way into people’s homes. Cabinet makers and designers followed the China display cabinet style in order to showcase their fine porcelain collection.
When the mid-19th century arrived, possession of porcelain items was becoming more common. They were no longer linked to rich households alone and had become more accessible. This created a demand for furniture that would display these fine collections. This led to the explosion of vintage style cupboards within the UK. These pieces came in a variety of styles and they were mostly made of brass or wood.
The Victorian era represented the great boom in the manufacture and design of display cabinets and corner cupboard with drawers. Over the years, many other influences impacted the styles and approach to the design of a cabinet cupboard. We are proud to say that Love Antiques offer an extensive collection of vintage old cupboards for sale that represent these different periods of styles and evolution.
