Description

A mid 18th century Welsh oak cwpwrdd tridarn (three part cupboard) of superb patina (colour), probably from the Snowdonia region.
The top section is open with turned columns at either end of the front, the sides having the desirable wavy slats above a fielded panel.
The back of this top section has three fielded panels with a display shelf, which is not original although has been part of the piece for a considerable number of years.
At the top of the middle section there is an unusual fine quality moulded frieze with ebony embellishments with turned drop finials at each end.
This section consists of 3 doors with arched fielded panels, the two outer doors having an inlaid design of oak & bog oak of Celtic influence with brass knobs & escutcheons. There is also an unusual split bobbin-turned decoration in between these doors.
The central door is carved with 'IR 22 1761' with a brass escutcheon with key so this can be locked.
This leads down to the bottom section, a sophisticated designed base consisting of three chamfered front drawers with brass swan neck handles.
These sit over a small, square central spice drawer
above two arched fielded panels and either side is a large arched fielded panel door, each of these opens up for storage.
The sides consist of various sized field panels, one square, one long and two short.
The piece terminates with four stile feet.
The tridarn was produced in a small area in the North of Wales, particularly Snowdonia between 1660-1770.
This design of cupboard was linked with pieces such as the press cupboard or the deurddarn and the top section was added to become the cwpwrdd tridarn which enabled the display of items in the open top section.
The initials on the middle door were probably to celebrate either a marriage or maybe a new home.
The inlaid design on the two other middle doors has a Celtic feel and resembles the Celtic cross.
This piece is in very good condition and in stable construction and can go straight into a home.
There is evidence of old restoration, completed in a sympathetic manner.
All three sections come apart to enable moving the piece much easier in smaller properties such as cottages.
Similar examples can be found in the book 'Welsh Furniture 1250-1950' by Richard Bebb.
