Sixteenth-century Linen Closet

Go here to view a stunning piece of sixteenth-century furniture, a carved walnut dressoir, or sideboard, used for storing linen and displaying gold and silver plate. Far too beautiful for such a menial function, it looks as though it could be a portal back in time, à la Narnia. Dusting must have been a daunting task!
