The doors also boast their original vertical wooden handles. The left-hand door retains its original sliding bolts, top and bottom, to secure the door when closed. The right-hand door retains its original working lock and key. Inside, the wardrobe features a hanging space with hanging rail to the left, with four vertically-arranged open compartments and two glass-fronted drawers to the right.

The wardrobe sits on its original moulded recessed plinth and the back features solid backboards.

This is a single-piece wardrobe. Its narrow width enables easy access into the house and bedroom, and it is ideal for compact rooms, as it consumes very little space.

This two-door wardrobe features a mellow walnut colour, retaining the original polish. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
