Good looking triple wardrobe by the celebrated Art & Crafts cabinet makers Shapland & Petter of Barnstaple c.1890. Three full long doors opening to reveal a double width section fitted with three shelves over two large drawers, plus a narrower section to the right hand side with a high shelf and hanging rail (internal depth 16"). Deep moulded cornice with a dental frieze. Centre door with a long dressing mirror with bevelled edge and set within an unusual moulded surround below a triangular pediment with carved detail. Side doors featuring beautifully carved double panels with stylized Arts & Crafts flower motifs typical of Shapland & Petter's decorative style, over raised and fielded panels with highly figured burr walnut veneers, all within moulded surrounds. Note the original handles to the doors and drawers. Symmetrically arranged veneers to the sides. Raised on a moulded plinth. Original locks and latches stamped S&P B. With a repair to the right hand return of the cornice. Otherwise excellent colour and condition, cleaned and waxed in our workshops.
