A Rare 1930s English Oak Credenza
A Rare 1930s English Oak Sideboard by Boosebeck Furniture, Middlesbrough. A limited archive of Boosebeck furniture can be seen at Ormesby Hall (now National Trust), former home of Boosebeck founder, Major Pennyman. This piece had been acquired directly from the workshops by a Pennyman family member. The style is evocative of the Cotswolds movement but could be said to be a front runner to some very big names in 1950s French Design, such as early Marc Du Plantier or René Gabriel, both of which employed similar panels or open cubist end supports. This sideboard embraces Cubism to the full with an arrangement of 4 panel doors and large supports featuring a 4 open panel design which provide strong visual appeal for this rare survivor.
