Product Description

A stunning original haberdashery cabinet…

This is such a beautiful piece! Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1960s, we believe this would have originally been used as a permanent shop fixture in an old haberdashery shop. It’s a cabinet that today could serve many of functions, that being in a retail environment or even for personal storage

Comprising of 12 individual storage drawers and made in a form of solid wood, this fine cabinet for us is a piece of art. The cabinet is heavy and durable with ample space to store your clothes or a variety of different items. The cabinet in general is in clean condition and unscented, with the odd surface scar and abrasion. The sticker on the reverse of the cabinet ‘Style Patterns’ suggests why the cabinet is ‘as new’ inside. This would have probably housed packets of materials or accessories for dress makers or even tailors. The drawer interiors are made of a lighter wood, and are quite naive in their build…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. In general the cabinet is structurally strong and heavy with the odd surface scar, maybe some wood chipping here and there and maybe some tatty areas. That said, it doesn’t impact the performance or the structure of the cabinet and we feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

This haberdashers style cabinet is great for storage and display. A truly ‘one off’ piece ideal for your garage, kitchen, walk in wardrobe or even a great shop display piece…
