Churchwarden’s Chest

February 17th, 2016

We’ve received a badly damaged chest from St Andrew’s Church in Timsbury, Hampshire.

The chest has significant fire damaged, its extremely old, dating back from the medieval period. It is an interesting well joined piece, unfortunate that it got caught in the fire damage, but it has done well to survive for so long. In consideration of its age and history we shall be undertaking minimal conservation treatments, keeping it true to its original construction and stabilizing it.

 

Also from Timsbury is this book cupboard with its rather charming letter cutting.
