“Gingko” G-Plan gentleman’s cabinet cupboard unit
Delivering from: Glasgow, United Kingdom (UK)
“Ginkgo” has been inspired by the oriental Ginkgo Bilbao tree, known for its distinctive fan-shaped leaves, and profound endurance, symbolising longevity. Rich metallic paper, designed by Zoffany in a “tiger’s eye” colour, surrounds this mid-century G Plan piece and has been given a protective coating.
The cabinet doors are hand stencilled and highly polished with a metallic bronze look plaster to continue the ginkgo theme; unique drawer fronts have been decorated with real dried and pressed ginkgo leaves, wrapped in variegated gold leafing and encased in clear resin to protect.
A dark “midnight blue” frame sets off the designs, with the original wood interior to add warmth. The wood has been repolished with lightly scented specialist furniture salve and smells divine

Welcome to Lady Griddlebone Vintage Originals! I love redesigning old furniture for contemporary homes. I’m lucky to live in beautiful Scotland and find plenty of well-made stylish items. I try to bring out the unique character of every piece: by sympathetically combining glorious colours, original wood grains, and historical or quirky patterns, its true beauty can shine again. I only use professional quality chalk and mineral paints, waxes and glazes, to give a superb finish.
