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.
