Potential Provenance & Research.
The family of the vendor purchsed this piece in 1923 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. A document is with it, stating that it was from the Crown Prince of Germany’s (Prussia) Shooting Box in the Black Forest and was part of a massive dining room suite, each piece similar to this.
Research has shown that the dates of exile and subsequent removal of furnishing over a series of cattle trucks, mean that this could be possible. We understand that there is a photo of the prince stood in front of this dresser in the Smithsonian Museum, but sadly due to covid closures, a confirmation of this has not been able to be received from the curator.
So provenance is currently unproven and must be seen as hearsay.
