Figured Oak Sideboard

This sideboard, with its lovely figured oak veneer, rosette mounts and carved legs, was my Nana’s. She always called it the Divorce Case, not sure why? When she moved out of her big old multi-bedroom house into a condo years ago the sideboard was given to my Dad. When my parents moved it ended up in my possession.

The piece needs some repair and to be refinished, which I will get around to one day. Currently missing from it is a mirror that attaches to the back, the mirror has been broken for years.

It is a piece that I will never part with as it has too much sentimental value now that my Nana is gone. It is a reminder of day gone by.

It currently resides in our dining room.
