Description

Attractive small antique Victorian carved mahogany purdonium.

A lovely small Victorian carved mahogany purdonium. We date this purdonium to the late 19th century.

The purdonium sits on four short cabriole legs. There is a decorative gallery to the rear of the top surface.

The cabinet comprises of a shield and foliate carved drop down front which is fitted with a brass drop handle mounted on a shapely oval backplate.

The interior of the purdonium is fitted with a metal liner for the coal or contents. When fully lowered it is possible to see the shovel for the coal at the top.

The purdonium has an overall height of 30" (77cm), a top surface height of 27.5" (70cm), a width of 18" (46cm) and a depth of 15.5" (39cm).

This lovely small Victorian carved mahogany purdonium remains in very good solid condition with only very minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage. There are some minor indentations to the top surface and the finish has mellowed very slightly over time.

This remains a very stylish and elegant small carved mahogany purdonium which will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
