Wimpole, Cambridgeshire (Accredited Museum)
A rosewood and inlaid bookcase, English, 19th century. With shaped ends of four open shelves flanking a central bookcase behind a glazed door. Raised on turned and ring-turned legs and inlaid throughout with lighter line inlay.
Listed in the Inventory taken at Wimpole in 1965 in the Vestibule of the Main Staircase (p. 6). Date of acquisition not recorded, but probably acquired by George Bambridge (1892 - 1943) and Elsie Bambridge (1896 - 1976), who purchased a largely empty Wimpole in 1938. The hall and contents were bequeathed to the National Trust in 1976 by Elsie Bambridge.
