AMAZING AAFA 1800’S OLD PAINT DARK GREEN PRIMITIVE WOOD DRY SINK SQUARE NAILS. Up for sale is this wonderful old primitive dry sink. It’s a large two door cabinet with a dry sink above. It’s a really cool dry, dark green color with light green, persimmon and reddish undertones. There are other colors coming through the dark green paint as it appears to have been repainted but the green paint is still obviously very old. There is a neat looking persimmon or pumpkin color paint on the inside of the doors which may indicate that the entire cabinet. May have been that persimmon color at one point. Please see photos for the best description and accuracy. The paint appears to be all original and is dry, worn, rubbed, scraped, chipped, nicked, edge worn and patina-ed! There are also some cracks in the wood from age. This is everything you’d expect to see from an old survivor cabinet like this! What a great look! It’s an old dry sink and you can see the big gnarly square nails on the back. One goes through the side and that side piece of wood is missing and you can see the nail is a hefty long one. You can see this in one of the four-up pictures in the upper left picture. The square nails have big rusty heads on them. Down below on the back you can see a blue board. This appears to be a replacement board but is still the same thickness as the top board. In the bottom board there are round nails. The side back boards are a full 1 thick, wow!! The front boards are 7/8 thick. The right side board is sloped and there’s a chunk missing near the front board. We took a close-up picture of this. On the front the doors have old and heavy Shaker style hinges on them. The doors open and the left door’s bottom hinge is loose both at the screws and the hinges. There are newer cabinet clasps on the inside to hold the doors shut as you can see in the pictures (the silver things). You could leave the doors open and display crocks, or firkins or other wonderful items. There’s a mouse hole on the front doors as you can see in the pictures. There are a lot of old rusty nails as you can see in the pictures. Also, there’s a crack in the well of the dry sink but it is still sturdy and strong. There’s no paint in the well of the dry sink. The paint has some edge wear, scrapes, patina, fading, variation of color, wood showing through, chipping and nicks. Please see photos for accurate detail and description. The pictures are pretty good for the color, especially the close up ones. It’s a great old cabinet / cupboard!! The cabinet measures 58.75 W x 19.25″ D x 29.75″ H. The well inside measures 56.75″ W x 17.5″ D x 3.5 H. We can also recommend a couple of shippers. This is a great dry sink! We regularly put up new items so check out our other items.
