Circa 1970

A superb example of his craftsmanship. Rectangular with an adzed top, two lead glazed doors to the front with fixed lead glazed panels to the centre and sides. The rear is fully panelled in solid oak and two 6mm thick glass shelves are fitted internally. Sid's distinctive wrought iron door and hinge fittings. Stunning condition with no damage or repairs. The top in particular has been lovingly waxed at regular intervals and has a wonderfully deep shine and is free from any staining or scratches. The only light marks are on the botton inner shelf which has a few light glass ring marks from normal use.

Excellent provenance, this particular cabinet is believed to be one of only two that Sid made in this configuration.

Size: 47"(w) x 14 1/2"(d) x 33 1/4"(h), 119.5 (w) x 36.5(d) x 84.5(h)

It is part of a substantial collection of  Sid Pollard's furniture i have acquired privately from the original local owner, who was a  personal friend of his, and who had all the items made to order between 1970 and 1980. They are only reluctantly selling due to emigrating shortly. Other items will be put onto the website shortly but for a brief list of the items included please click on the enclosed link to the  News Page of my website. Please contact me for further details.

Circa 1950's

Of solid rectangular form on 4 square and octagonally carved legs with visible dowelled joints and plain stretchers. The wood has a lovely deep honey colour and aged patina. The cushioned leather top is inset with domed brass upholstery pins. All original with superb patination, free from water staining, just the expected light creasing to edges. Regular treatment annually with a leather conditioner will keep it supple and stop it drying out.
