This fine exemplary example is with good provenance and was commissioned for Edward Pease 1767-1858 and remained within the family for further generations, I have the written singed letter to support this, in brief Edward Pease was known as the father of the railway, being responsible for the building of the first public passenger railway and was to later employ George Stephenson, financed and backed by Edward Pease the worlds first railway between Stockton and Darlington was opened on 27th September 1825.

The cabinet has just been professionally sympathetically re-polished not to disturb the original patination, retaining all its original features, it is just the fabric beneath the brass lattice work replacing the worn exiting, the cabinet is very much the grand piece today as when first commissioned, beautifully flamed mahogany rich in patination is evident throughout, delicate carvings of acanthus enhance the arched panels, two pierced carved brushing slides extend to support the plans, the two doors enclosing a fitted interior to include five slides with brass campaign style handles and additional storage space below, this wonderful historic crafted cabinet will no doubt lend itself to a number of optional uses.

The overall dimensions are 48 . 5 inches in width, 38 . 5 inches in height and 33 . 5 inches in depth.
