This is an unusual oak cabinet which dates to the Victorian era.

It was owned in later years by a Doctor and may have been originally intended for use as an apothecary or stationery cabinet.

The cabinet is solid, heavy and well made but not particularly large.

It could be used floor standing but may be better suited to use on a large desk top.

The front is fitted with three heavily carved doors which are lockable, two of the original keys are present and work well, the left hand door is missing its key so the one shown is purely decorative. The doors open to reveal fitted pigeon holes for storage.

The wood has a polished finish which has a low sheen finish.


This cabinet is in good structural condition.

The top has some marks here and there.


height- 51cms
depth- 39cms

each small pigeon hole measures 14.5cms high x 9.5cms wide x 33cms deep

The measurements are taken at the widest points.


  • H: 51cm (20.08in)
  • W: 106cm (41.73in)
  • D: 39cm (15.35in)

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
