Product Description

A charming antique filing cabinet…

Dating back to the early part of the 20th century, circa 194os, this is a genuine hand made cabinet with authentic patina. We just love the ‘higgledy piggledy’ nature of the drawers which all fit together in an odd fashion, yet keep the original functionality. For us it feels a little ‘chemist or apothecary esq’, something you’d have found full of medicines behind a chemists’ counter…

The cabinet is made from a light wood and tacks, then hand painted and fitted with metal handles. It is naively built, yet works as it should. You may need to move the drawers on occasion to fit back into place, yet we found this the fun bit and it added to its charm. It’s well used, but its original labels with surface staining, the whole piece is a cool piece for display or for storage…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The cabinet is structurally good with some obvious paint chipping, jagged edges and tatty areas. We feel the patina simply adds to the look and authenticity… Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
