Product Description

A superb set of metal storage lockers…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, it is oozing authenticity. We think it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s onwards. This piece was discovered in France, and has wonderful character. Twelve individual storage boxes are housed in a light wooden frame, then covered with a metal fascia. Each of the twelve compartments (or doors) are ‘lockable’, ensuring this piece is functional and has decorative appeal

The cabinet itself is relatively light weight, therefore one could place it in many locations in ones home, or of course a retail environment. It wouldn’t look out of place in the kitchen or even with ties or socks in it. That said, maybe this could be a cool collectors cabinet too. It’s got a great industrial look to it, albeit it is naively built in places…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The cabinet is hand made and hand crafted, therefore this shows age related wear and tear (and a naive build in places). Although the entire piece is structurally good, we note that the wooden back to the cabinet has been added rather naively, therefore it’s showing some jagged edges and some uneven wood (or ply). That said, it does perfectly ‘free stand’. There is general wear and tear across the whole piece, it’s tatty and dirty in areas and the keys are a little bent too. The one notable point is that one compartment (number 3 pictured), is missing its key. This therefore leaves the door a little ‘ajar’. I’m sure one could have a new piece cut with ease if desired. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
