Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Beautiful rich warm deep honey colour and superb patina.
Featuring the finest design and craftsmanship throughout. Including the rare break front design, with the break flanked by split reeded columns, which are repeated to the outer side edges of the base.
The way the reeded columns are split, to mirror the flow of the horizontal line with cupboards below and drawers above, is beautifully done. The same reeded columns also feature on the front side edges of the rack.
The unusually fancy shaped applied panels are another sign of a top quality piece, made for a wealthy estate.
Even the swan neck handles are of rarely seen fine-shaping and design.
Base has four central working drawers, with cupboards either side and working drawers above. Standing on lovely ogee shaped bracket feet.
The lovely Botanical Beauties dinner service was produced by the short-lived partnership of Elkin and Newbon of Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire in 1844 to 1845. Back of each piece is printed with floral cartouche mark with 'Botanical Beauties' and 'E & N'. Service includes four meat plates, twelve dinner plates (two slightly larger with different flower design) and nine small plates.
A wonderful collector's quality piece, and one of the finest examples of the classic Welsh dresser we have ever had the pleasure of displaying.
