A polychrome-decorated bow-front corner cupboard, Dutch, late 18th/early 19th century. Of two doors with decorative brass hinges. Decorative with cream shaped reserves painted with polychrome flowers and bouquets, all against a black ground. With upper and lower mouldings. Enclosing shelves.
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.
