The King Edward Hotel/Then and Now

This piece of furniture has an interesting history. It was given to me last summer by my aunt, Margaret Agnelli after my uncle, Albert Agnelli died.
Albert's father, John had worked at the King Edward during the 1930's and 40's and had aquired this piece (possibly a display cabinet) during his time there. I contacted the King Edward and they were interested in having it back as part of their collection. I gave it to them today and Ron (the restorationist) was very pleased to have it back after 80 years or so.
I look forward to seeing it on display in the near future.
Thanks to Pearl Famoso for helping to organize this donation.
