Description

A top notch, rare & unique piece of British craftsmanship! Need we say more? ‘Howard and Sons, Berners Street, London’. A superb, very usable Victorian rosewood sideboard of large proportions with the full makers stamp in the drawer & intact original paper label to the rear. This piece of furniture when bought new would have represented a substantial investment by its first owner, who was obviously a very, very wealthy individual, possibly titled. The cabinet is formed of two sections, the top has moulded and ribbed cornice over four small, beautifully bevelled glazed doors and four recesses and is fitted with pillared side supports. The base section has three frieze drawers with superb, window catch style brass handles, bevelled glazed centre doors and two further side doors, & is supported on bun feet. This cabinet represents the best of Victorian manufacturing that is often copied, but never equalled in quality or detail & could genuinely be described as being in near perfect, original, unmolested condition. This piece, if made today (even if it was physically possible for it to be made today), would cost tens & tens of thousands of our fine British pounds to produce. The price today is £10,000 a substantial sum of money, but actually a fraction of its true value.
Working height 90CM.
Internal Ref: HF1056
