While I get the "Treat of the Week" ready for tomorrow, let's take a look at a yummy little corner cupboard from the Royal Collection.
One of a Pair
Possibly by John Carrack, 1770
Purchased by Queen Charlotte for
The Royal Collection
Made of beech, pine, mahogany and gilt-bronze, the suite was a central focus in her bedchamber at Windsor Castle. Queen Charlotte was so taken with the furnishings that she carefully selected fabrics to match the pattern of green and gold which graces the front of each piece.
The makers of the suite are something of a mystery. Clues in the styling and workmanship indicate that they were the design of the relatively unknown John Carrack Of Northumberland. However, this cannot be verified. Regardless of their maker, they’re beautiful pieces and speak volumes about Queen Charlotte’s sensibilities.
