Fine and rare George III period yew-tree cabinet of delightfully small proportions; the shelved cupboard enclosed by a pair of doors, above a baize-lined slide and two short and three long oak-lined drawers with original cast-brass handles; all the mouldings are ebonised and the cabinet stands on original bracket feet of a particularly unusual design with ebonised split-turned baluster inserts.
In very good condition with lovely yew-wood and ebonised features.
The literature might suggest the cabinet has an Irish origin however it is thought that a more recent provenance is that is from Langley Park, Norfolk
A closely similar yew-tree cabinet, surmounted by a shelved superstructure, but with the same arrangement of drawers and distinctive feet, was recorded at Castletown House, Co Kildare in an article in 'Country Life' by Margaret Jourdain in 1937.
