A superb George III mahogany press or estate cabinet of beautiful small proportions.
With the unusual feature of the doors locking at 90 degrees by means of original metalwork, this enables the slides to be fully withdrawn outside of the cabinet whilst contained within the doors.
The feature and also the lack of the front edge on the slides leads me to beleave this was designed to store maps or other documents as it allows easy access in good to inspect them.
Could equally be used today for linen or in the dining room.
The base with twin doors opening to reveal wonderfully fine oak lined drawers.
I think they perhaps housed some sort of collection.
Of superb colour & patination.
I have been established as a dealer and antique furniture restorer for almost 20 years.
I have a real love and passion of fine 18th and early 19th century furniture.
As a professional restorer I am always searching for the finest quality and original items but should any restoration be nessesary it will be sympathetically and skilfully carried out in house by myself.
