A Fine Rosewood Cabinet on Stand

A fine rosewood cabinet of drawers on stand, beautifully figured Indian Rosewood veneers on a mahogany base; the drawers are of oak, finely dovetailed all round. Satinwood and boxwood stringing with brass campaign-style flush fitting handles. Five pairs of graduated drawers above a single wide and deep, locking drawer. All were originally lined with green velvet, now with later applied green baize suggesting this was used, and perhaps made, as a canteen for cutlery. The two drawers to the base are false. Fine in all respects, unmarked but attributable to Edwards and Roberts. English circa 1880.

Edwards & Roberts was one of the principal London companies working in the taste of the late 18th century. They started business in 1845 and by 1854 were trading as "Edwards & Roberts, 21 Wardour Street, Antique and Modern Cabinet Makers and Importers of Ancient Furniture". They had ceased trading by 1899.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road. Please be aware that this shop is too small to show all of the stock on the website and that you should make an enquiry before your journey to ensure that the item in question is there for you to see. We are open every day, with the exception of Sundays, between the hours of 10 a.m. & 4 p.m., (Saturday 7.00 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
