Large 19th.c Wardrobe & Press.

Following a few oversized new arivals in the last week or so here is another behemoth for today’s post. This stunner comprises two hanging wardrobes, a press cupboard and a large chest of drawers in one epic wall full. Fantastic colour, elegant oval door panels with ebony inlay, oak drawer linings and slides. Fully restored. Key supplied. Happily it splits into four sections plus base and ‘hat’.
Dimensions: width 103″, depth 24″, height 86″.

Large Late 19th.c. Welsh Oak Corner Cupboard.

It’s always a delight to see a genuine piece of Georgian period Welsh oak furniture come in through the door and this fine corner cupboard is a particularly nice example. Dating from the late 18th.c. with wonderful colour and patina, typically restrained design with an elegant dental cornice. Retaining original brass fittings, locks and keys. The inside features original paint finish and original hand made cup hooks.
Dimensions: width 51″, depth 34″, height 80″.

Waring & Gillow Bedside Cabinets, Cheval Mirror & Side Cabinet.

It was no suprise to find this superb suite of burr walnut bedroom furniture was by the celebrated British manufacturers Waring & Gillow of Lancaster. Comprising a very desirable pair of bedside cabinets with two drawer tops, a cheval mirror with slipper drawer base and a single side cabinet.
Probably dating from the very early years of the 20th.c. it boasts matching veneers, hardwood drawer linings, original shaped and bevelled mirror and original brass handles. With Waring and Gillows stamps on all the looks as well as on the top of the side cabinet door. Excellent condition, newly French polished in our workshops. Photographed here together with our burr walnut chest on stand which I thought matched it rather well.
