1950s vintage twenty four drawer haberdashery unit/chest of drawers. Haberdashery Units don't get much better than this. Twenty four shaped and graduated tiered drawers with original wooden handles. Handcrafted from Ash and Oak with its original brass measure and glass throughout.
The internal dimensions of the drawers are 26cm wide and 13cm deep. The lengths vary, the bottom row drawers are 56cm then in ascending order, 48.5cm, 41cm and the top are the smallest at 34cm. We have thoroughly cleaned and tidied up the unit retaining its character and scars of life, but making sure that all the drawers run smoothly. Judging by the quality of cabinet work and the leg and drawer detail, this piece was made for a top end retailer.
Haberdashery units make for great free standing chests and we have seen them used in bedrooms and changing rooms as practical storage or in playrooms and living rooms as display cabinets.
Please note that there is a small chip on the top glass about the size of a five pence piece, it's hardly noticeable but we want to point it out. Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
