Castle Ward, County Down (Accredited Museum)
In 2009 funding from the Royal Oak Foundation in America enabled the conservation and stabilisation work to be carried out on the press. The work in progress provided an opportunity for the visitor to see at first hand conservation in action. The mystery remains as to who delicately painted the pretty floral sprays on the back of the glass panels?
Mirror fronted Gothick Press or Gentleman's wardrobe. Triple bay, two drawers under each, all surmounted by castellations and pinnacles. Date uncertain, c1770?
