1930'S WALNUT CARVED CORNER CUPBOARD BY ARTHUR SIMPSON
1930's Walnut Carved Corner Cupboard by Arthur Simpson.
A beautifully hand carved solid walnut corner cupboard in lovely proportions, the carving features berries and leaves. To the front is a single galzed door with hree shelves inside. In superb, original condition. Simpson is one of the forgotten masters of English Arts & Crafts Furniture. Born in Cumbria, in 1857, he showed an early flair for wood carving, taking two apprenticeships and working in London before returning to Kendal to establish his famous Handicrafts workshop. The clean simple lines and superb workmanship of his Arts & Crafts furniture found a ready market locally. Simpson died in 1922, but the workshop continued under the guidance of his son until 1950.
