Product Description

A wonderful workshop cabinet…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, it is oozing authenticity. We would suggest that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s. We understand that this piece was salvaged from an old factory in the North of England. The cabinet has wonderful character, and the current patina gives this piece a unique decorative dimension, whilst still being quite the functional piece. The cabinet has been hand made, with three drawers and a side cupboard – that reveals one shelf (or two storage areas). The cabinet is tatty in places, yet it is structurally good and perfectly moves on its four original casters. This is a charming piece!

The cabinet itself would wouldn’t look out of place ones kitchen or even the ol’ boys workshop. That said, we think this piece would also look cool in a retail setting or even in a shop window for display purposes. It’s relatively lightweight in pine, yet its still strong and sturdy. All in all, it’s a rare original piece of craftsmanship that has a rustic feel. A good deep clean and even a clear wax would set this piece off…

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 some natural surface losses to the wood. There is general wear and tear across the whole piece and it is tatty on the reverse. That said, 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 : The cupboard door doesn’t have a key or lock on the reverse of the door. It does however open and close freely…
