Tabblo: Charles II Court Cupboard

I came across this beautiful C17th Court Cupboard whilst photographing the interior of Bury Parish Church. It's a beautiful piece of workmanship with exquisite carving and guilloche patterning typical of the period. I just love the butterfly hinges which have remained there since they were nailed into place almost 400 years ago. It's hard to believe, but the cupboard is a contemporary of Samuel Pepys. It's great to get to touch and photograph history like that.
