Rare Ernest Gimson set of cabinets
As good as it gets!
A rare set of three stand alone, documented, oak Cotswold School cabinets by the Cotswold School architect designer master; Ernest Gimson.
Comprising a central deeper tallboy (cupboard above three drawers) and flanked either side by a shallower depth hall robe.
Beautiful hand crafted metalwork by his trusted master blacksmith, Alfred Bucknell.
Each unit is fully independent but the three were designed together and made in his Daneway Workshop c1909.
The original drawing (we have a copy) for these is now held at the Wilson Art Gallery & Museum in Cheltenham;
drawing number 1941.222.533
NB: the central tallboy unit is deeper than the outer two robes; just in the images they all look of equal depth.
Dimensions to follow.
Excellent provenance; from the estate of the late Joan Griffith of Wellbrook Manor;
garden designer, a graduate of the Courthald Institute of Art and the Tate Gallery.
