1950S War Department Oak Chest of 5 Drawers

BILLY HUNT

Vintage 1950S War Department Oak Chest of 5 Drawers

A decent and usable sized chest of 5 drawers – two at the top and three sitting underneath. Stamped on its rear with WD – the War Department emblem and dated June 1959. This oak chest would be great in a bedroom but would not look out of place in a living room or hallway.

It’s a good-looking piece – well designed with its smart angled legs on all corners, curved corners, bevelled edge to the top and simple round knobs to the drawers. Condition wise it’s not bad, there are a small number of chips to the veneer on the lower edges of the side and b bit to two of the drawers but otherwise pretty much what you would except from a chest of this era. The drawers are running smoothly, all clean inside. Its sitting firm no wobbles.

Dimensions – Overall: Height 81.5cm x Width 91.5cm x Depth 49cm

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. 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 choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

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.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
