A walnut, sycamore and fruitwood marquetry table cabinet, South German/North Italian, early 17th century. Of dovetailed construction. The top, sides and hinged fall inlaid with a brick-work arcade raised on columns and enclosing two sprays of flowers and scrolling foliage issuing from urns. Enclosing nine small drawers around a central small cupboard door, all inlaid with interlaced stylized foliate strapwork. Raised on four turned bun feet.
Listed in the Inventory taken at Wimpole in 1939 in the Vestibule (p. 15) and in the Inventory taken in 1965 in the First Floor Vestibule (p. 46). 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.
