• This pretty rare design in rosewood includes well carved rope twist pilasters sitting on super hairy paw feet. The decorate brass mounts are very good quality. The silk moire covered panels sit behind stylish brass grills and for decorative purposes can be removed or replaced with glass. In 35 years I have only seen 3 other types of cabinets of this design and would speculate that they represent the output of just one fine cabinet maker.
• This is well proportioned for modern living – so whilst practical for storage will sit elegantly against a wall without projecting out too far.
• The cabinet comes in super restored condition with the rosewood having developed an attractive colour.
• A rare find.
• Delivery £90 uk ex. Scotland
Other than a few smaller items that can be safely posted, nearly all items are hand delivered (and set up in the case of clocks) by Martin Bros who are one of Britain’s most prestigious carriers of antiques and fine art. I wish us avoid the hassle of cheap men and their vans! The standard (subsidised) delivery price shown is for mainland UK excluding Scotland. Please ask for a Quotation where the standard price is not applicable.
Restoration and Presented Condition
I do not subscribe to the shabby chic or make it like new approach using modern materials which can make future restoration extremely difficult and impede long-term investment value.
Any restoration work is done to the highest (museum) standards using traditional materials so as to not compromise the patina of age.
Accordingly, please note some antique items for sale will have wear and marks associated with use over many generations that adds to the aesthetic beauty of the piece from the collector’s perspective.
Fine Art - Condition
All Paintings offered have been chosen for their excellent original condition, with where necessary museum standard cleaning, restoration and revarnishing. Presented in Gallery condition they are ready to hang for many generations, before cleaning / revarnishing may be necessary.
Any Questions?
I just love acquiring and talking about antiques and fine art so will be pleased to discuss any of the items I have for sale on UK 07515 741344 or
Best wishes Richard
