This beautiful server is an ebonized oak server from the Victorian period, circa 1890. It was made in England and remains a sturdy and beautiful piece today. Typical to the period, green mask carvings adorn the back splash and were used as handles on the drawers. Beautifully turned barley twist columns separate the shelves while hand carvings adorn almost all surfaces.
The two drawers open and close smoothly and were joined with hand cut dovetails. The entire Victorian server is sturdy and wobble free.
The oak wood was ebonized at some point. This is a process that many Victorian era pieces went through where they were stained black. Over the years this black stain has worn down on the shelves and raised surfaces to a very beautiful patina.
At some point, the very top has sustained an age separation in the boards. This is a common, cosmetic phenomenon for solid wood pieces. It does not affect the structural integrity of the piece. Also, there are a few minor dings and indents here and there, especially on the lower molding corners. Other than this, the piece is in great condition!
There are 13.5″ of vertical space between the shelves and the overall height without the back splash is 41″.
