Superb well patinated repousse metal panels and hinges to front; both with typical intricate Pictish design.
Furniture pieces by Alexander Ritchie are incredibly scarce.
For a similar piece, a cupboard with part identical metal panels & hinges, is illustrated (archive photo) on p 24 of the book, Iona Celtic Art by E Mairi MacArthur.
