Arts & Crafts Rathbone Voysey cabinet
A rare and beautifully proportioned excellent quality Arts & Crafts domed top oak cabinet of compact size.
Pair of cupboard doors over three drawers, with stunning Rathbone strapwork metalwork hinges and handles (possibly silvered);
the whole very much in the manner of CFA Voysey, for whom Richard Llewellyn Rathbone (WAS Benson`s cousin) did indeed design and make metalwork for, as well as for the likes of AH Mackmurdo & The Century Guild and others.
With its original, most exquisite, and again, very Voyseyesque, intertwined heart shaped key.
Possibly by the top London firm of JS Henry; under further research.
Approx 50" high, 21.5" wide, 12.5" deep.
