This is a lovely example of Georgian Country House Furniture. It is a robust oak Cupboard Dresser and Rack, circa 1760. English, possibly Yorkshire. Built firstly as a solid practical piece of furniture for the home, it was most certainly also built to impress, both in its own right, and as a platform for the household collection of dining wares. The base has 2 full height cupboards, and a central column of four drawers. The doors have raised fielded stepped arch panels; and this framed panel construction is repeated on either side. It has a platform base, and two plank top. The corners are embellished with quarter round deeply reeded columns. Inside the cupboards there are 2 full depth original shelves to the left and one on the right, see photo. This architectural elements of the base are harmonised through the design of the rack. It has reeded columns to either side and a deep moulded dentil cornice to the top. The 3 shelves of the rack have grooves for standing plates, the lower 2 having retaining bars also. The top shelf is very deep and would be for displaying large meat plates. There are wrought iron cup hooks to the front of the 2 shelves - 6 on the lower shelf and 4 on the upper shelf. In addition there are 2 large wrought hooks at either end of the top shelf, ideal for hanging large jugs. See photos. The brass bail plates are replacements. Period and style to match the dresser.
