Amish Heritage Shaker China Cabinet Top, 40 inch - SKU#2360
The original China Cabinet was first developed as a floor-standing display case for Queen Mary of England to house her fine china collection. It provided highly visible display and storage space behind it's glass doors, and was also fitted with glass sides to enhance Her Majesty's viewing pleasure. The British may well have exported this idea to their colonies, although the Early American China cabinets bear more resemblance to the Secretary Bookcase. Indeed, it seems that a creative early American housekeeper got the inspiration that she could display her family's good chinaware behind glass bookcase doors just as well as their valuable book collection!
Today's China Cabinets are quite different to Queen Mary's floor standing display case. These top-cabinets, are usually seated upon a well-built Shaker Sideboard Cabinet, available separately. This particular model comes with wooden side panels and Flat Top Doors. To further enhance Your viewing pleasure it may also be fitted with lighting and an optional mirrored back. Other models are available with glass side panels, as well as Cathedral Arch Doors - which add an extra aura of refined gentility.
This very stylish 40 inch Amish Heritage Shaker China Cabinet features authentic round wooden knobs as standard. By using 100% premium American oak or cherry hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of the original Shaker Cabinets.
