Edwards and Roberts Antique Furniture.

They became one of the leading London cabinet makers and retailers and the firm produced high quality furniture, as well as good copies of the 18th and 19th century English and French pieces.

This wardrobe or cupboard is a tour de force of design and craftsmanship, you can see the fine craftsman carvings all over, it really is a piece of art furniture. We have cleaned waxed and polished the piece from top to bottom, it has lots of patina marks all over, there are small pieces of wood missing at the bottom of the top section (its two pieces) on both sides, timber splits, the cornice has been screwed in all round as it was loose. This piece has been restored in a way to make it usable and stable, I can have the little pieces of missing timber replaced, any screw holes filled and finished should the new owner wish for an.To be honest I have stopped as you see it because I love honest patina and thing it is charming as it is.
