Sideboard Cabinet

Not known, c. 1805, Furniture; a sideboard cabinet, oak and mahogany. H. 99; W. 120; D. 59

<p align="JUSTIFY">  <font size="2">The top of the sideboard lifts to reveal an oval pewter basin fitted in a well. A pewter urn fixed inside the lid discharges water into the basin. The lid itself is held open by hinged wooden brackets, which also support two pairs of folding shelves for glasses. The basin and cistern are stamped with Rotterdam pewter marks. The carcase of the sideboard is made from oak, veneered with mahogany. Formerly at Farfield Hall, Addingham, Yorkshire, the sideboard cabinet was given through the LACF by Lady Martin in 1952.
