Sid Pollard, Yorkshire Oak 4’ Glazed Display Cabinet

Stock ref: DS1116

Circa 1960s

A wonderfully handcrafted display cabinet, adzed and pegged to the top and visible framework in line with early craftsmanship, with traditional wrought iron door and hinge fittings. The glazed and leaded panels feature rare and very distinctive diamond shaped riven glass inlays to the front and sides which compliment the adzing on the wood beatifully. The rear is fully panelled in solid oak and two removeable 6mm glass  shelves are fitted internally.

Super condition  and deep honey colour commensurate with its age, with no evidence of damage or previous repairs, just a small and very light faded evidence of an old water mark to the front right of the  top and the expected light  ring marking/ fading on the base panel from normal use. From a local Teesside owner.

Size: 47 3/4" (w) x 14 3/4"(d) x 34"(h),    121.5(w) x 37.5(d) x 86(h)cm

Sid Pollard lived in bagby near Thirsk and was one of Robert Thompson's early apprentices. His solo work is almost always unmarked, preferring to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. After leaving Thompson's he combined his solo woodworking with the family building firm, Pollard Builders. He continued woodworking until his death in the 1980's.

Please note that i am selling this display cabinet on behalf of the owner, but it is in my possession for viewing and purchase by clients.
