A Stunning English Pine Wall Cabinet

Just got back from a 2000 mile 6 day road trip and found this gorgeous original Fawsley style astrical glazed wall cabinet made to replicate - perfectly - Georgian period pine pieces. What scale!!! I'm 6 feet under my hair...hmmm? Just had to share it. 144" wide and 102" high and 23" deep in the middle and 20" deep on the wings. The shelf depth is 12 1/2" on the wings and 15 1/4" in the middle. The case case close by magntic clickers and the bottom cabinet by lock and key.







Wonderful hand carved details.


Note the inside finish in the old world style with a grey/white wash glaze and finger smoothed putty edges...these will crack to emulate a Georgian piece. The camera's flash made it appear a bit more grey than it is...the white was overpowered.











Lastly, the Fawsley comes from the Fawsley Manor in Daventry England, a 2000 acre Tudor/Georgian estate an hour north west on the M1 between Birmingham and London.
