Object Literature

Of good roomy size and able to slide into a period or contemporary setting.

The whole is perfectly serviceable, the drawers glide smoothly, and the whole proves sturdy and in good original order. We have waxed her to retain the current patina and finish which would have arisen due to being near a fireside or heat source.
