'MONASTIC' CARVED OAK 'DERBYSHIRE' DRESSER.

MODEL No.88

 

A VERY ATTRACTIVE, MID 20th CENTURY, CARVED OAK, 'DERBYSHIRE' DRESSER, OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND CONDITION. THIS FABULOUS CARVED OAK DRESSER WAS MADE BY 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS', FROM THE 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT' FURNITURE COMPANY, OF BRAILSFORD, DERBYSHIRE. THE 'GRIFFITHS' WORKSHOP / SHOWROOM IS NOW BASED AT THE OLD CHEESE FACTORY, GRANGEMILL, DERBYSHIRE AND IS RUN BY SON 'NIGEL GRIFFITHS'. EACH ITEM OF FURNITURE IS INDIVIDUALLY CRAFTED, WITH HAND CUT DOVETAILS AND IS PLANED, SANDED, CARVED, STAINED AND POLISHED ALL BY HAND. THE DRESSER IS CONSTRUCTED USING TRADITIONAL METHODS AND ONLY THE VERY BEST QUALITY SOLID OAK TIMBER AND FINISHES ARE USED THROUGH-OUT, INCLUDING ALL DRAWER LININGS, THE BASE AND BACK OF EACH PIECE OF FURNITURE. THE DRESSER HAS ATTRACTIVE OAK-WOOD GRAINING THROUGH-OUT AND WOULD SIT NICELY WITH OTHER MATCHING ITEMS OF 'NIGEL / RUPERT GRIFFITHS' 'MONASTIC' 'HAND-CRAFTED' FURNITURE. IT ALSO TAKES ON A DELIBERATE 'STRESSED OAK', AGED APPEARANCE, WITH RUSTIC 'STRESS' MARKS THROUGH-OUT. THE DRESSER HAS A LARGE REMOVABLE TOP SECTION, WHICH HAS A MOULDED TOP CORNICE, WITH A DECORATIVE SHAPED FRIEZE BELOW. THERE ARE TWO LARGE PLATE RACK GROOVED SHELVES IN THE TOP SECTION, MAKING IT IDEAL FOR DISPLAYING PURPOSES. THE SHELVES HAVE DECORATIVE, 'CHOP-CARVED', STRAIGHT-CUT, FRONT EDGES AND THERE ARE SOLID OAK BOARDS IN THE BACK OF THE TOP SECTION, ALL WITH A 'HAND-CRAFTED' 'ADZED' FINISH. THE TOP SECTION ALSO HAS SHAPED SIDES AND IT RETAINS IT'S ORIGINAL WOODEN HANGING HOOKS, WHICH ARE FIXED TO EACH SIDE. THE SIDEBOARD SECTION BELOW HAS A SPACIOUS, OVER-SAILING, FLAT TOP. IT HAS TRADITIONAL STRAIGHT CUT EDGES, WITH 'CUT-OUT' CARVED DECORATION TO THE FACE AND SIDES. THERE ARE TWO LARGE USEFUL DRAWERS BELOW, WHICH PROVIDE ADDITIONAL STORAGE SPACE. THEY BOTH HAVE CARVED, SOLID OAK, 'EYEBROW' HANDLES AND ATTRACTIVE 'FLUTED' MOTIF CARVING TO THEIR FRONTS. THE DRAWER SIDES, EDGES AND RUNNERS HAVE ALL BEEN WAXED TO ELIMINATE WEAR, STICKING DRAWERS AND UNNECESSARY DAMAGE. THERE IS A LARGE DOUBLE DOOR CUPBOARD SECTION AT THE BASE, WHICH AGAIN PROVIDES AMPLE STORAGE SPACE. THE TWO DOORS HAVE MATCHING INSET OAK, 'FIELDED' PANELS, WITH VISIBLE PEGGED JOINTS THROUGH-OUT, FOR ADDED STRENGTH. THEY ALSO HAVE DECORATIVE SOLID OAK, 'HAND CRAFTED' LATCHES, MATCHING 'EYEBROW' HANDLES, HAND MADE WOODEN HINGES AND THEY RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL SWIVEL DOOR CATCHES. THERE ARE MOULDED BORDERS TO THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF EACH DOOR AND THEY ARE SEPARATED BY A FIXED CENTRAL PANEL, WHICH IS SET WITHIN A SOLID OAK FRAME. THE PANEL HAS MATCHING 'FIELDED' 'PICTURE-FRAMED' BORDERS, WITH VISIBLE PEGGED CORNERS. THE SIDEBOARD SECTION HAS SOLID, INSET OAK, SIDE PANELS, AGAIN WITH MATCHING 'FIELDED' 'PICTURE-FRAMED' BORDERS, WITH A MATCHING 'FLUTED' CARVED FRIEZE ABOVE AND BELOW, AGAIN WITH DOUBLE PEGGED JOINTS THROUGH-OUT. THE DRESSER STANDS ON FOUR SUBSTANTIAL 'RING-TURNED' OAK LEGS, RAISED UPON STURDY BLOCKED FEET, ALL WITH VISIBLE PEGGED JOINTS, FOR ADDITIONAL STRENGTH AND SUPPORT. THERE ARE MOULDED / CHAMFERED STRETCHERS AT THE BASE OF THE SIDEBOARD SECTION, AGAIN WITH MATCHING 'CUT-OUT' CARVED DECORATION TO THE BOTTOM EDGES. THE DRESSER IS ALSO STAMPED / BRANDED WITH THE 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT LTD' BEETLE, WHICH IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE MAKER 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS'.
