Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Larger pieces at this time were often made in two or more parts for ease of transportation and moving within a home. Often referred to as Country Furniture, pieces of this nature were not made by estate joiners but would have been made in the major towns and cities. The degree of complexity and the use of rare timbers like yewwood and exotic woods like snakewood would have made this an expensive “showpiece” when it was first made and strongly suggests it would been made for an important household.
