The cabinet is a hand-made bespoke piece crafted by a master cabinet maker Mathew Lang and is made from solid English Oak.
Such as is the attention to detail from Mathew that he wasn't happy with any of the hinges available in the UK and so he sourced them from Australia!
Amazing, considering that the hinges are at the rear of the cabinet and are out-of-sight!
The lid is a precision fit and is virtually airtight when closed and weighs in at over 35 kilo's and protected by tempered glass.
The display comprises of artefacts recovered from the Estate covering a wide time-span, from Neolithic to Modern including Roman Samian Ware and Medieval pottery as well as coins from both era's.
The landowner is hoping that we can fill a second cabinet in due course and of course, we are happy to oblige.
