Large late 19th.c. gilt frame wall mirror c.1890. Original 24″ x 32″ bevelled mirror plate set within a broad carved and pierced cushion frame with the original top.

Early 19th.c. Welsh oak press cupboard from Carmarthenshire c.1800. Low height, typical of the form. Flat three plank top over a two door cupboard fitted with a single shelf over three large drawers in the base, the middle drawers being dummy fronts allowing extra space inside the cupboard. Very attractive pointed ogee shaped raised and fielded door panels. Canted corners, diamond shaped bone escutcheons and tall bracket feet. Unusually the cornice features bone inlays carved with the name Sara Rees, presumed to be the original owner to whom the press may well have been given as a wedding gift. Whilst we believe these to be original to the piece it seems the middle inlay, dated 1826, is a later addition. Very good condition with some earlier restorations. The brass drawer handles are period replacements.
Dimensions: width 56″, depth 21″, height 54½”.
