Product Description

Antique Victorian Burr Walnut Side Cupboard

Made by the famous Royal maker Holland & Sons.

Holland and Sons are one of the finest names in cabinet making, they directly competed with Gillows in their time and were specialists in crafting the absolute finest quality furniture that money could buy . The Victoria and Albert museum are currently in possession of the firms daybooks that detail an extraordinary client list of high society, worthy of a firm that were granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment early in the reign of Queen Victoria and who went on to exhibit in major exhibitions in London, Paris and Vienna. Such was the high regard for this firm that they were appointed in the decoration and furnishing of the Royal residences of Windsor Castle, Sandringham, Balmoral and Marlborough, as well as producing many hundred furniture commissions for the British Government at the Palace of Westminster, Victoria and Albert Museum and oversaw the State funeral of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington to name but a few.
The firm continued to trade right up until fashions and, therefore, demand changed in the 1940s.

This rare cabinet is truly the Rolls Royce of bedside cabinets and is presented in original almost flawless pristine condition, a stunning collectors piece. This high quality cupboard features burr Walnut to the top (and top edge), moulded panel door and plinth, complete with wild figured Walnut either side. The cabinet is complemented by its lovely yet simple tray top up-stand which shows off the cabinet makers quality mitred dovetails to the rear. The cupboard features a moulding to the underside of the tops burr Walnut edge further complemented by its turned columns either side of the door, the right of which hinges the door in the French style. The cupboard door also features is lovely original turned Walnut turn handle which operates its original slam latch. Turning the handle and opening the door reveals a large storage compartment divided in the centre with 1 solid Mahogany shelf. The cabinet houses the Holland and Sons trademark stamp with unusually burr Walnut to the sides of door. The cabinet is veneered and polished on the rear which is very unusual of any other cabinet maker. The cabinet stands on a bold moulded platform which is burr Walnut veneered to all sides.

This cupboard is in an outstanding condition featuring its original idyllic highly glazed French polished finish with its beautiful lightly evenly faded Walnut colour. We have carefully cleaned and waxed this cupboard, maintaining its original patina whilst giving a lovely natural sheen.

Although this item is a bedside cupboard it is ideal to be also used as a side table, lamp table, hall table or even a beautiful statement/talking piece in any room.

Please note; This item is in fantastic condition for its age as shown by the photographs. Being an antique item of this age there are obviously marks, scratches and dents. However, we feel that these points are which adds to its charm and character to a piece.

  • Victorian Table

    I bought a restored Victorian table from here. When it arrived, it was wrapped incredibly well in bubble wrap, and had obviously been recently polished. It was immaculate. Friendly service, and a good price. Would definitely use again.
