Pugin cabinet

This cabinet was designed by Augustus Welby Pugin and made by John Gregory Crace for Abney Hall, Cheshire in 1847. Pugin was a designer and writer who pioneered the Gothic Revival style, one of the most influential design styles of the nineteenth century. He was a prolific designer of stained glass, metalwork, furniture, textiles, wallpapers, ceramics, embroideries and jewellery.

Pugin and Crace collaborated on many projects including the Palace of Westminster, the Medieval Court at the 1851 Great Exhibition and several country houses.
