I have never seen another cupboard like this, tambour drawers are almost always mounted vertically, it is very rare to see them horizontally. The cupboard is all mahogany, the very bottom lock is stamped 1503 and VR under the Queens crown, what that means is it was made during the reign of Queen Victoria. The tambour section has been totally dismantled, serviced and rebuilt, the backing velum paper that holds the tambours together had perished on one side, as such it has been replaced with leather.
The cupboard now works however the left side is temperamental and takes a bit of understanding to take it move as it should, the right side is just fine. We have cleaned waxed and polished the it from top to bottom, it looks amazing to my eyes and hands other than the above mentioned points, it will naturally have age related patina marks here and there. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
