Secure Payments By
A top quality Edwardian set of drawers that came from a country Post Office, recently closed down. They are made from solid timber throughout (no ply) and have an abundance of varied storage space. There are two banks of five generously sized, dovetailed mahogany drawers either side of a central section, that houses six smaller drawers and six pigeon holes with shaped arches, three of which hide trays that can be slid out, all faced in contrasting maple. These have a couple of small pieces of veneer missing from the corners (see detailed picture). An interesting feature are two flaps that at one time used to be able to secure each of the five mahogany drawers at the turn of a single key (unfortunately key is missing). The top is of one piece of thick mahogany that is highly polished showing all the natural figure of the grain.

Good. It has at one time had a small patch repair to the base of the right hand side panel (see detailed picture) but this has been done some time ago and has been polished over many times since then which have helped blend it in and now is hardly noticeable. Apart from that, it is very clean and there are very few marks on it and, considering its age, is in remarkably good condition. It has a polished, panelled back which considering it is not normally seen, is another indication of its quality, apart from it being quite weighty.
