English Unknown Maker

Early Fishing Tackle Cabinet (fly tyers cabinet), formerly part of the Property of the Rt. Hon. Lord Scarsdale, at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire, Great Britain. Crafted in walnut, the double doors at the front open to reveal nine oak drawers of various sizes. They contain a quantity of antique tackle, including tackle winders, flies on cards (distressed), an early turned bone float, etc. The cabinet measures 20" X 13 1/2" X 12 3/4". It has brass handles on its sides. The cabinet appears to be of quite early construction, possibly late eighteenth century at the earliest. It is quite possible that this has been made by one of the cabinet makers employed at Kedleston, as perhaps were some of the contents. Much of the tackle bears the initials A.C., obviously another member of the family. The cabinet was formerly included in a sale of the contents of Kedleston Hall, one of the country's finest Palladian houses. The current owner replaced the back of this cabinet with old wood. Includes paperwork describing this cabinet when purchased by the current owner. Includes a key. Price Reduced.
