A 'RUPERT / NIGEL GRIFFITHS'

'MONASTIC' CARVED OAK 'DERBYSHIRE' DRESSER.

MADE AND SIGNED BY ''JOHN McGINN''

 

A VERY ATTRACTIVE, MID-LATE 20th CENTURY, CARVED OAK, 'DERBYSHIRE' DRESSER, OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND CONDITION. THIS FABULOUS CARVED OAK DRESSER WAS HAND-MADE BY 'JOHN McGINN' WHO WORKED WITH 'RUPERT GRIFFITHS' AT THE 'MONASTIC WOODCRAFT LTD' FURNITURE COMPANY, WHICH WAS BASED IN BRAILSFORD, DERBYSHIRE. THE 'GRIFFITHS' WORKSHOP / SHOWROOM IS NOW BASED AT THE OLD CHEESE FACTORY, GRANGEMILL, DERBYSHIRE AND IS RUN BY RUPERT'S 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 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. IT 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 THREE USEFUL DRAWERS BELOW, WHICH PROVIDE ADDITIONAL STORAGE SPACE. THEY ALL HAVE ATTRACTIVE 'FLUTED' MOTIF CARVING TO THE FRONTS AND THEY RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL HAND-MADE 'TURNED OAK' KNOBS. THE DRAWER SIDES, EDGES AND RUNNERS HAVE ALL BEEN WAXED TO ELIMINATE WEAR, STICKING DRAWERS AND UNNECESSARY DAMAGE. ONE OF THE DRAWER SIDES HAS ALSO BEEN SIGNED 'J M' BY 'JOHN McGINN' HIMSELF. THERE IS A LARGE DOUBLE DOOR CUPBOARD SECTION AT THE BASE, IT HAS A FULL LENGTH, FIXED SHELF INSIDE, 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 AND HAND-MADE WOODEN, STRAP HINGES, WITH ADDITIONAL MOULDED BORDERS TOP AND BOTTOM. THERE IS A FIXED CENTRAL PANEL BETWEEN THE TWO DOORS AGAIN WITH A MATCHING INSET OAK 'FIELDED' PANEL AND VISIBLE PEGGED JOINTS THROUGH-OUT. THE SIDEBOARD SECTION HAS SOLID OAK, SIDE PANELS, AGAIN WITH VISIBLE PEGGED JOINTS AND IT IS RAISED UPON TRADITIONAL BLOCKED FEET. THERE IS ALSO A DECORATIVE SHAPED FRIEZE AT THE BASE WHICH IS AGAIN DECORATED WITH 'CUT-OUT' CARVED BORDERS. THIS SUPERIOR QUALITY, 'JOHN McGINN' 'GRIFFITHS', 'HAND-MADE', CARVED OAK, 'DERBYSHIRE' DRESSER HAS BEEN CLEANED, RE-POLISHED, IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION THROUGH-OUT AND WOULD BE A VERY USEFUL AND ATTRACTIVE ADDITION TO ANY HOME!
