A Very Small George II Oak Welsh Cupboard
The overhanging cornice, above a pair of opening doors, with exceptionally well-shaped raised upper panels, over smaller horizontal panels. The base containing a pair of opening drawers, which again have raised panel fronts.
The joiner, or cabinet maker, must have taken a great joy in this type of construction as both ends of the cupboard have three panels set vertically. This is one of the smallest standing cupboards I have had – and is now fitted with a central rail for use as a wardrobe, ideal for a small cottage.
Rich, dark colour and patina, very typical of furniture found on the Shropshire/Welsh borders.
Montgomeryshire, circa 1740.
Width 56 inches, depth 23 inches, height 60 inches.
