(Linen presses became particularly popular throughout the
18th century onwards, for as the name suggests, storage of the
household linen. They normally come with fitted sliding trays in
the interior of the top section designed to allow easy access to the
folded linen, however these have often now been removed &
replaced with a hanging rail to allow storage of clothes on hangers
which is more in keeping with modern day living. This particular
linen press is a great size, constructed from superb quality, rich
and well figured mahogany and boasts elegant oval panels to
its doors. It retains its original brass handles and its original
bracket feet. What more could one ask of a truly functional piece
of furniture?)
