A late Victorian ebonised mahogany pyramid museum display case
Removed from Chiddingstone Castle, Kent, believed to have previously stood at The British Museum
the gull-wing vitrine comprising three pairs of fall fronted doors with bay-ends, raised on twelve hexagonal section supports,
This capacious cabinet is notable for its superbly conceived design and engineering. The timber is beautifully carved onto a sturdy construction. The fixtures and fittings complete the case with every detail taken care of. Even the folding armatures for each leaf clip away out of sight. It is made to the highest specification. Due to LASSCO having to extract the cabinet through a window at Chiddingstone Castle, each leg had to be cut. They have subsequently been dowelled but not glued to ease any onward delivery.
