A wyvern from a fourteenth century Welsh manuscript
A wyvern (/’wa?v?rn/ WY-v?rn, sometimes spelled wivern) is a legendary creature with a dragon’s head and wings, a reptilian body, two legs, and a tail often ending in a diamond- or arrow-shaped tip. A sea-dwelling variant dubbed the sea-wyvern has a fish tail in place of a barbed dragon’s tail.

The wyvern in its various forms is important to heraldry, frequently appearing as a mascot of schools and athletic teams (chiefly in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada). It is a popular creature in European and British literature, video games, and modern fantasy. The wyvern in heraldry and folklore is rarely fire-breathing like the four-legged dragon. Sometimes modern fantasy book and media authors have wyverns that are frost-breathing or poison-breathing instead of fire-breathing.

A rare William and Mary period small cabinet of outstanding colour and patina.
The cabinet is veneered with walnut onto a pine ground and has a feather banding and cross band. The mouldings are made from cross grained walnut applied to a pine ground. The door opens to reveal five veneered walnut drawers, three with original drop handles. Under the bottom drawer is a secret compartment with a wire hinged lid, which suggests the cabinet was made to hold valuables. The carrying handle to the top is original as is the escutcheon , and hinges to the door. It was probably made to stand on a table or maybe the 3ft veneered chests of the period. There are no signs of it having had any bun feet, but there are signs that it has been fixed to a wall at some time.
