This is a handsome antique cabinet which dates to the early 20th century.
It would have once been part of a larger piece of office furniture and at some point in its life has been adapted and turned into a table top writing chest.
The chest is well made from solid oak and has a fall front which opens to reveal a leather topped writing slope and internal pigeon holes for storage.
Below this is a wide drawer finished with a brass drop handle.
The base is set on turned bun feet and the fall front has a distinctive patented brass lock with handle.
The cabinet is lockable and the key is present.

46.5cms high x 70cms wide x 24cms deep

There are various small marks of age and use but generally it is in very good condition.
The top would have once had a back plate, there are filled dowel holes where this once sat.

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.
