Air Ministry Oak Chest of Drawers C1950

A good looking 1950s chest of 5 drawers stamped AM Air Ministry to the rear.

Great look with echoes of Gordon Russell in the design and getting more difficult to find in good condition. It’s of a useful size with two half drawers to the top and then three lower deeper drawers underneath. It’s the simple look that means these fit into modern and period homes so easily.

Workshop report – The chest has been carefully re-polished and bees waxed by hand to bring out the grain and tone of the oak which is good. The piece sits firm with no wobbles or repairs. We have sensible light marks and a wear mark to the top about 2cm in diameter but nothing nasty or off putting. The original oak knobs are sitting as they should on the drawers which have been cleaned to ensure it’s ready for use.

A fine looking piece of Air Ministry furniture C1950.

Dimensions - Overall: Height to Surface 83.5cm and Gallery Top 86.6cm x Width 91.5cm Depth 45.5cm

Dimensions - Specifically the Drawer Interiors: Top Two, Height 10.5cm x Width 38cm x Depth 43cm and the Lower Three, Width 85.5cm x Depth 43cm

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 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.
