A Rare Charles I Oak Standing Cupboard

The boarded top, lifting to reveal a shallow recess, enclosed by twin panels, carved with stylised serpents, above a pair of panel doors, below a rail carved with elongated ā€œSā€ scrolls. The ends are formed of four equal size panels and the cupboard stands on stile feet.

The serpents, chip carving around the panels and use of the elongated scrolls, suggest this originates in Gloucestershire, circa 1630.

Width 47 inches, depth 19 inches, height 42 inches.
