A Cotswold School Walnut Sideboard
This Arts & Crafts sideboard is made of solid walnut and has a canted front with cupboards either side of four graduated drawers. The cupboard doors have double fielded panels and they, along with the drawers, have shaped wooden handles of a darker, contrasting colour. It has exposed dovetails where the sides meet the top and the bottom and it also has unusual flared, six-sided feet. The drawer linings are made of oak, as is the back.
Displaying elements of both the Cotswold School and the Brynmawr furniture makers, it may have been made by someone affiliated with either one or both of these.
There is a matching table and six chairs, details of which can be seen by clicking here.
It measures 152.5cm wide, 55cm deep and 92cm high. Internally, the bottom shelves in the cupboards are 39.5cm high and the top ones 25.5cm.
It is in very good condition.
