Antique Black Painted Linen Press
This is a handsome three part antique linen press which dates to the 19th century.
Made of mahogany and mixed woods it is ideal for a bedroom, a good statement piece which will provide plenty of storage space in any home.
The linen press is well made and splits into three parts, top plinth, base section with drawers and double door slide section.
The top section is fitted with four internal wooden slides, the doors have a lock but sadly the key has been lost, we will fit an internal catch to hold the doors closed, the key shown is simply decorative.
The base section consists of a heavy chest fitted with four spacious drawers fitted with ornate brass drop handles, the drawers run well and the interiors are in clean condition.
I have hand painted the exterior in my own mix of water based black paint, the interior has been left in the natural wood. The paintwork has been very lightly distressed and then waxed for protection, it has a smooth fairly matt looking finish.
The linen press is generally in good structural condition having been checked over and repaired as necessary in our workshop. There are various cosmetic marks of age and use, small scratches and dents below the painted surface and the top plinth has some small sections of edging missing.
The drawer bases have age related shrinkage cracks but are quite sturdy.
The key does not lock the doors, it is purely ornamental.
