I am wondering if anyone might have information on this hutch. It has replaced hardware and it has a bow front door with beveled leaded glass with key locks. The seller said that she thinks it was refinished before she purchased it at auction. She planned on restoring it but had no time.
WHAT I THINK THIS IS ACTUALLY CALLED......
"An antique Stepback cupboard is a form of cupboard which comprises a dovetailed case, enclosed cupboards and a shelving unit on top of this construction." I looked at it in person and it has old hand cut dovetail drawers. The top portion was married and not an exact match.
Both pieces are really old but I would say the base is older. I plan to find another base that matches the top even better and change the hardware to something more antique- original.
Brief history and description
"Stepback cupboards were particularly popular at the turn of the 20th century, and many antique forms of the cupboard hail from this era. Many more can be dated to the 1800s."
