AE 32
A Rare and Important Aesthetic Movement display cabinet.
Design attributed Dr C Dresser
Probably made for Bushloe house and originally bought in Leicestershire where Bushloe House was built. This outstanding commissioned piece has all the character intimate to Dresser. On close examination of the Frog wardrobe, dressing table, chest of drawers and dressing table mirror designed by Dr C Dresser which also came from Bushloe House exhibited in Harry Lyons shop New Century in Kensington Church Street where I was lucky to examine it many times (I later bought the shop from Harry) and after close inspection of the bedroom suite while it was there and also the cabinet they would all seem to be made by the same maker, the Ebonising is quite thick and the gilding is also applied with a number of coats. The construction also points it to Bushloe house pieces. As you can see there are many elements particular to Dressers intimate style especially the Elephant sidetable and the Elephant corner chair both in a similar style as this.
