H. 33.7 x W. 51 x D. 33 cm

Berkeley Estate, thence by descent

A beautifully carved ebony table cabinet, carved on all sides with two doors carved in- and outside, revealing seven small drawers, with gilt and engraved copper mounts and hinges and the carcass of Indian rosewood.


With a paper label underneath with initials MCB in manuscript. 'MCB' most likely relates to Lady Mary Catherine Berkeley (1829-1924), née Browne, daughter of Thomas Browne, the 3rd Earl of Kenmare (Ireland). In 1851 she married Robert Berkeley of Worcestershire and they lived at Overbury Court House, Overbury, Worcestershire.
