A Tunbridge Ware trinket cabinet veneered in coromandel with floral panels to the top and doors and geometric borders to all sides. The interior is fitted with three graduated drawers inlaid with mosaic and with stickware knobs. Labelled Thomas Barton.

Circa 1870

The inlay on this cabinet includes green wood, the colour resulting from  attack by the fungus Chlorociboria aeruginascens.  This is known as spalting, a term applied to wood attacked by fungi, which cause colouring inside the wood. Spalted wood was introduced to Tunbridge Ware by Edmund Nye in the 1840's and Thomas Barton particularly favoured using green wood.
