Calke Abbey, Derbyshire (Accredited Museum)
A painted pine or deal side cabinet, English, probably late 18th century. With a plank top above two sets of three drawers flanked by panelled cupboard doors, raised on a plinth base.
The kitchen at Calke was re-modelled by Sir Henry Harpur (1763-1819) in 1794. It is possible that the cabinet was supplied with other shelves and work tops in 1795.
Calke Abbey and contents transferred to the National Trust by the Treasury in lieu of CTT in 1985 with an endowment provided by the NHMF.
