A Good British Vintage 1940s Oak 19 Drawer Science Lab Cabinet Cupboard

Have to say this ones got the look. A true piece of school science lab furniture surviving in great vintage order from around the late 1940s with original hand written drawer labels intact and attached.

From BOULD’S OF THE POTTERIES, specialist makers of domestic and institutional furniture, it’s got a great looking and useful drawer combo – 4 long lower drawers topped by three flights of five graduated smaller drawers, the smaller ones having the original hand written labels with “CLAMP ARMS AND BOSSES” and the such written.

Very much of the era in design – made with purpose. The oak frame is topped with a dense thick darker top. The drawer handles all in situ match the top and again echo the era well. It’s a pretty heavy piece.

Condition wise – it’s good – the frame is scarred and marked however firm with no movent. The dense top is again historically marked nothing fresh with a little piece missing from the back and one of the rear corners. All drawers are running well and are numbered for moving. We have cleaned the inside of the drawers and only historic marks remain – two have a little rippling to the base inners but this is only on the surface and not a cause for concern. We have waxed the runners and its ready to place. Expect a vintage piece – marks and scuffs...

A fab piece of British school furniture with such a handsome look!
