Quality Art Deco Limed Oak Hall Cupboard Wardrobe Waring & Gillow
A rather fabulous and very placeable Hall Cupboard Wardrobe in Limed Oak stamped, numbered and labelled Waring and Gillow circa 1930 one family ownership and cherished from new now wishing to find new keepers. Not an awful lot of these around in this design and quality.
A little something that may help. “In the late 20s/early 30s Waring and Gillow of London embarked on a brave new venture when they created a Modern Art Department and brought in the noted designer Serge Chermayeff as director. The first exhibition of this department showed furniture in the modern ‘Art Deco’ style by Chermayeff and Paul Follett, the director of Waring and Gillow of Paris.” The piece was probably part of that creation.
The images perfectly display that subtle Deco design and influence and you cannot doubt the quality of the craftsmanship and oak used with interesting grain and forms. The piece survives in fine order with its useful brace of sliding hanging rails in chrome, two hooks on the inner sides, a top shelf in oak and an inner ¾ length door mirror. We have sensible historic use marks and a little warping to the lower inner base but not a concern. Doors are closing and opening as they should – no key unfortunately.
A really super piece of 1930s British furniture from Waring and Gillow.
