ITALIAN RENAISSANCE - gramaphone cabinet


Unique compared to today's style and shape of furniture,
I'm sure most didn't see potential in the original piece the way it was found at the auction.


It had been altered long before we ever set eyes on it, but
it did have a makers mark on it the back making it possible to do some research.


It is a McLagan cabinet probably pre 1920's
in an Italian Renaissance style.
Originally a phonograph cabinet made in Stratford, Ontario Canada.

The doors swing completely around to sit flush to the sides.
It had a copper pipe cut to fit inside the upper part of the cabinet
I've assumed maybe for babies clothes.


Gorgeous little drop pulls


I sprayed it an off white and used a custom blue for the intricate trim.

As seen here above there is an interesting pull out surface,
something I don't believe was an original feature of the cabinet.


The pull is perfect for folding towels, before storing them away.
