Object Description

In good original condition, the stained pine flight or bank of twenty-one drawers, each with knob handles, having seven rows of three drawers, consisting of four smaller rows graduating to three deeper rows each with grooved borders, the whole standing on later shepherd castors and surviving from the last quarter of the nineteenth century.

Object History

Unknown.

Object Literature

Made by a Victorian craftsmen for workshop use, this is a versatile and sought-after period piece of furniture. It is probable that this particular example was used for haberdashery or in a general shop counter environment. It is also possible it was for apothecary or artists pigment use.

Always popular and always hard to source.

Object Condition

Pleasingly heavy and in beautifully untouched condition the staining now has a well-established patina; the handles are largely all original and each drawer moves freely. The later castors allow the piece to move more freely though they could be removed for table or countertop display if so desired.
