This is a stunning painted large Gothic large wallcupboard ( in typical Wm Burges style ). Richly painted and gilded with a gabled roof and 'saints' in arcades. At the time his contemporary Eastlake criticised Burges for his 'doll's house tricks' used on his furniture, but who has time remembered better ? (neither of them ? don't be cynical !). Shown as an example of our work in this style. This is practical as well as decorative, as it was used to disguise an electric meter. Size ht 35" x w22" x d10". Made to order.

The cupboard on the right is relatively recent also with saints on the front. Pieces like these can be made to order.
