Antique Hutch


C and I found this fantastic wooden hutch at an auction in town ... It has a working flour sifter behind one of the doors, the tray pulls out for use and the bottom doors have wire holders.

Done with speedball dip pen, Adirondak rust dye ink, watercolor and Micron Sepia pen .05.

Beautiful job Lin! I love that ink color-it just looks 'oak'.

Great job, Lin. I like it. The pen and ink does great. I'm beginning to experiment with water soluble ink myself. Got a bottle of the Higgins Sepia. I like it.

What a gorgeous piece of furniture! You drew it really well too Lin. I've never heard of a flour sifter being built in.. I wonder if that's a unique feature?

great drawing, you really got the essence of the piece! your antique hutch looks like a Hoosier cabinet; what they used in the old days to store flour & supplies, and the pull out countertop was used for rolling out piecrusts, etc. the roll down portion was for storing the bread. kind of an all-in-one baking station. good find!
