Product Description

A beautiful hand made ‘eight drawer’ workshop cabinet…

Although we are unsure of the exact date of this piece, it is oozing authenticity. We would suggest that it dates to the first quarter of the 20th century, circa 1930s. It’s a naive build, yet the cabinet has wonderful character. Eight ‘hand made’ drawers are perfectly secured inside their holes to form a great looking piece from the front. The fact that each one is slightly different in size, ensures this piece has charm and elegance. Also, the best bit is the carry handle at the top, enabling one to pick this piece up and take it with you

The cabinet itself would be quite functional too. It wouldn’t look out of place in the kitchen or even the ol’ boys workshop. That said, maybe a collector would like to place his or her collection in here too. It simply needs a good spruce up and maybe a clear wax to give it a new complexion…

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, there are some tatty areas and natural surface losses to the wood. There is general wear and tear across the whole piece, yet we believe this simply adds to its character and charm. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : A couple of the drawers are a little ‘stiff’. Nothing major, we believe once cleaned that these will work perfectly
