Antique Black Painted Linen Press Wardrobe in 3 parts
This is a useful three part antique linen press which dates to the late 19th century.
Made of mahogany and mixed woods this piece is ideal for a bedroom, a handsome statement piece which makes a nice alternative to a traditional wardrobe.
The linen press is well made and solid and splits into three parts. The top has double doors which open to reveal internal pull out slides. The doors are lockable and the key is present although it can be a little temperamental.
The base section consists of a large four drawer chest set on bracket feet. The drawers are fitted with later antique drop handles set on decorative back plates.
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 lightly distressed and then waxed for protection, it has a smooth mid sheen finish.
The press is generally in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use. There are small scratches and dents below the painted surface and the left hand side of the base has an area of repair near the back. The interior has some marks and scratches here and there, one of the slides has been repaired. The back of the top section has some old brown paper tape along the panels where they have shrunk slightly over the years.
