Welsh oak cwpwrdd tridarn, of impressive proportions and with inidividual carved and punched decoration. The canopy section is raised on turned supports, over a central section of two doors either side of a central panel flanked by drop pendants, over a base of two doors.
Snowdonia, circa 1630
81” high, 56” wide, 22.25” deep

(This rare example is illustrated in “The History of English Furniture: The Age of Oak”, Percy MacQuoid, 1904)

Ref: 16740

The canopies of the earliest cwpwrdd tridarn often appear to be fitted to the lower parts in awkward way, the conventional design not being established until the late 17th century.

This tridarn is in the exact form recorded by MacQuoid in 1904, and close observation of the carving shows that the canopy belongs to the lower sections. However, cuts in the front columns and rear panelling of the canopy indicate that it may have been adapted in height for part of its life, or possibly separated, with the lower section used as a "court cupboard".
