Calke Abbey, Derbyshire (Accredited Museum)
One of two oak cupboards fitted onto piers between the windows. There are three shelf sections; the two upper sections both wide cornices, and two shelves. The lower section also has a wide cornice, with five shelves. They have a grained wood surface. The shelves stand on a slab of black marble with a fall-front oak cupboard below. The cupboard is fitted with two pairs of sliding shelves, each divided into three compartments. A wider black marble slab is below it, on a two-door cupboard. The cupboards are oak, with a solid oak base. The cupboard doors are of carved latticed brass wire with a pleated red silk backing. A carved colonette stands each side with carved leaves top and bottom and a section of reeding in the centre.
