Superb burr walnut Cotswold School small chest or bedside cabinet of the highest quality, by Stanley Webb Davies of Windermere; c1950`s. Part of a special commission he undertook for his client friend, the artist John Michael William Crowther. Fully stamped and marked with the SWD cartouche for 1956. Unusually, has a pair of internal flaps to top drawer that flip out and can be used as coffee or tea cup rests! Probably originally designed to go between two beds. The bottom drawer pulls down. This piece is very similar in design to an earlier 1948 sewing cabinet he designed for his wife Emily.
Approx 25.5" high, 14" deep and 15.5" wide.
