LASSCO has a long history of buying and selling the best of museum cabinets that become available from our most august institutions. Cube cabinets, wall cabinets, slope-topped vitrines and display cases of all dimensions from The British Museum, The Natural History Museum, The Victoria and Albert and The Ashmolean have all been bought by and sold from LASSCO over the years.
See a V&A cube cabinet in Elle Decoration this month (Sept 2008 issue) which we loaned for the shoot. Two others which we sold, now gracing the library at Aynhoe Park were featured in Country Life two weeks ago.
Don't despair … we have more. At LASSCO Three Pigeons the cube cabinets are housing our burgeoning collection of taxidermy, The slope topped vitrines are displaying Delft tiles. The bronze bound counter cabinets from Aspreys do nicely to show off the door-knobs and the British Library bookcases are currently stuffed with staircase spindles. They are all for sale and can be put to a myriad of uses in any situation … domestic or commercial.
There's monster cabinets from The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew that make fabulous room dividers as do the bookcases from The British Library.
Search "Cabinet" on the website to see the full variety currently on offer at both LASSCO Three Pigeons in Oxfordshire and LASSCO Brunswick House in London.
