Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The quality of this cabinet is reflected in the choice of its burr yew veneers. Normally such examples would have been veneered in walnut but on rare occasions burr yew or elm would be selected although such timbers were kept for only the finest examples. This combined with the elaborate use of geometric inlay points to this cabinet being a premier example commissioned by a wealthy and important patron.
This cabinet also displays one of the most sought after characterictics found on the best English furniture, colour and patination. The mellow exterior contrasts beautifully with the warmth of the veneers on the interior drawers.
Finally despite its age this cabinet has survived with little alteration since its original creation. The feet have been replaced in the mid Eighteenth Century which we have left as part of the piece's history but all the handles are original and many retain their original fire gilding.
