Exhibition number: Displays 20

Victorian parlour. It was the fashion in Victorian times to have a great quantity of furniture and ornaments in the home.

The long-case CLOCK oak case and the carved OAK COURT CUPBOARD were made and carved by Louis White of Aberystwyth; the clock is on loan from his family; the lower portion depicts the Death of Gelert. Both pieces were made soon after 1900.

The DRESSER was the property of the late Mr Dafydd Edwardes of Penuwch and is on loan from his family. It was made probably about 1890; the twisted pillars, the mixture of oak and mahogany and the side cupboard are typical of the period.
