This charming mahogany smokers cabinet was crafted in Victorian England around 1850. The mahogany displays a rich complexion and a highly pronounced grain that have only grown more beautiful with time; the same is true for the exquisite satinwood and ebony inlays that adorn the interior of this piece. The richness of the wood owes to the elaborate finishing process that Victorian cabinetmakers employed in constructing their furniture; there were often over a dozen steps in the finishing process, which ended with a fine, hand-rubbed coat of wax. Not only does the wax enrich and protect the beauty of the wood, but it is easily maintained for long periods of time: waxing a piece just twice a year will keep it looking new indefinitely.This fine Victorian smokers cabinet is certainly an excellent example of how smart craftsmanship can defy the perils of time. It has, however, sustained some wear, including superficial separations in the wood and a number of scuffs. It has also lost a few knobs on the interior drawers; the small, inner door has also warped so that it doesn’t fully shut. Neither do the exterior doors lock. However, none of these details detract from the fundamental beauty and convenience of this piece; instead, they only add to its lovely antique charm. Overall condition is therefore very good: whether used for its original purpose, as a jewelry box, or for storing other small items, this smokers cabinet would make a fine addition to any furniture collection!
