Description

A warming handmade Mid 19th Century Early American Jelly Cabinet or Pantry Cupboard. A rectangular form made from American Walnut with an upper surface enclosed by a serpentine backsplash that features one shelf, over three hand dovetailed drawers and lower cupboard with two shelves.

Jelly cupboards have their historical roots in 19th-century America. Pioneers found plentiful fruit wherever they went and sought a way to can and preserve these finds for the long winter months. By the 1830s, jelly was common in Midwestern American households. Fruit was stewed into jam in large quantities, and appropriate storage facilities were needed. This led to the creation of the first jelly cupboards.
