Learn about Corner Cabinet

A cupboard built in triangular form designed to stand or hang in the corner of a room as a space-saving measure. The doors are either panelled or glazed. Freestanding corner cupboards with an upper and lower section are scarce, and most that come onto the market are of the later Victorian to early Edwardian period. The smaller hanging corner cupboards are much more readily available. Australian made corner cabinets are extremely scarce.

Learn about Hanging Cupboard

Any small cupboard intended to be attached to the wall, often of a triangular shape for corners. Used as food and storage cupboards from early times, some were fully panelled, others were fitted with glazing bars. Collectors should rely on stylistic evidence to determine age, although hanging cupboards with large plate glass fronts usually date from the 20th century.
