Impressive 1920s Oak 21 Drawer Tambour Door Cabinet. From the home of an elderly rock and gem collector, this impressive British piece from the early part of the 20th century sings quality and let’s face it, it’s also damn good looking when the door is up. So pleasing to be offered a decent piece of British furniture and even more pleasing when its in a decent tone of oak. We have a smaller tambour door cabinet from the same client which will be listed later however this one trumps that one. The 21 drawers are a line of three smaller drawers over a flight of 2 lots of 9 all of which have dovetail joints with the lining and sides also in oak. The drawers have raised panels to the fronts on which the age tarnished brass index holders with finger pulls sit.

The condition is good – the oak is of a good tone. Expect light marking to the top and light scuffs to the bottom oak plinth. One of the brass index holders does have a repair but that seems to be holding up ok. The tambour is working fine and comes with its key and lock. A cared for piece rather than a barn find – so no odours. We would say well aged.

A fine piece of British furniture…

The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.
