Good 1920s Oak Vintage Cabinet Chest of 8 Drawers

Our last large piece from South Wales which once belonged in a haberdashery shop. This is a rather good 8 drawer chest of drawers surviving from the around the 1920s, English and probably bespoke made – a little pencil signature, probably the maker, can be found to the inside of the frame, a nice touch.

We like this one – It’s not too large, the quality and craft is good and it’s in fine condition with sensible day to day wear rather than a sad looking barn find we sometimes get offered. We have 2 runs of 4 deep drawers all sitting on handsome looking feet, topped with a decent oak top and those great looking panelled sides. As mentioned it’s not too big and narrower than most – fine for a hallway, kitchen, bedroom or commercial space…

Workshop report – the piece has been carefully re-polished and waxed to enhance the grain and tone of the oak. The drawers are clean and runners have been waxed so they are running and closing as they should. We have no cracks or splits to the side panels, just a little split to the top but historic and fine. The brass handles – a historic replacement are lightly tarnished and would polish up more if you wish. The whole piece sits firm with no wobbles and smells fine. Worth noting it’s a heavy piece for its size.

A great looking piece of 1920 English oak furniture ready to place.

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.
