Lot Number: 1
An 18th century Continental pine and inlaid travelling cabinet, the hinged top above three faux drawers, central cupboard door enclosing ''secret'' drawers and an arrangement of six further drawers with a simple plinth, width 63cm (af). The cabinet was used by Bishop Thomas Fanshawe Middleton who was a noted Anglican Bishop and became the first Bishop of Calcutta. He took this role in 1814 when the Diocese included not just India, but the entire territory of the East India Company. The cabinet has come from the family and it is believed that this is the travelling chest that accompanied him in India.
