Wimpole, Cambridgeshire (Accredited Museum)
A very large pair of mahogany and inlaid cutlery urns, English, circa 1780 and later, with modifications.
Listed in the inventory taken at Wimpole in 1965 in the Dining Room (p. 3). 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.
