Rare Guild of Handicraft Fine Feathers wardrobe

Code: 10988


A simply stunning and superb, rare Arts & Crafts oak wardrobe attributed to Charles Robert Ashbees's Guild of Handicraft; c1895.

With the most exquisite heavy duty but finely hand forged beautifully chamfered muscular metalwork hinges and handles, coupled with a splendid patinated copper repousse panel of two opposing peacocks and the famous motto "Fine feathers Make Fine Birds".

A precursor no doubt to Ambrose Heal's later "Fine Feathers" range of furniture. Some of the craftsmen/cabinetmakers at the Guild did later go over to work for Heals.

Approx 25.5” max depth at top, 61”max width at top, height 82”.
Comes apart in seven sections for ease of delivery etc!
