An exquisite antique Teak cupboard from the colonial era. This one of a kind cupboard stands over seven feet tall, perfectly proportioned for the high ceilinged colonial houses of the British Empire.

The headpiece of the cupboard leads us to conclude that it was constructed in Burma by specialist craftsmen; retaining the quality and look of English furniture, while also reflecting the culture of the country where it was made. The front face of the lower drawer is of one single block of Teak, impossible to carve today without severe wastage of material.

Of special note is the mirror. Oval with a cambered edge, the mirror is believed to have been imported from Belgium, as Burma did not have an advanced glass industry.
