Product Description

A stunning original bank of drawers…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this beautiful piece, we understand that it could date to the very early part of the 20th century. Given its makers mark, ‘Pritchett & Gold’ of Victoria Street, London were incorporated in 1901, manufacturing traction batteries and also a few electric cars. We believe this would have originally been used as a permanent fixture in their factory or even in their offices. It’s a set of drawers that today could serve many of functions, that being in a retail environment, for personal storage or even simply for display

The cabinet is structurally very good, having a ‘little weight’, yet strong and elegant in its nature. The cabinet being an original early 20th century piece, is beautifully built. The entire piece is hand made in wood (possibly pine with a stained finish), and the drawers made with dovetailed details. It is a beautiful looking piece, and the addition of the enamel plaques (featuring the makers marks) make this piece quite unique. The individual storage drawers all fit as they should, albeit being a little higgledy piggledy in nature. One will note that although they are many years old, they ooze charm and authenticity…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. In general the drawers are structurally strong and secure, however there are a few minor surface scars, knocks and wood chipping across the piece. We think this is what gives it its character! Lastly, please note that although the drawers were originally ‘lockable’, there is no key present with this piece. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
