This is a handsome pine linen press wardrobe which dates to the late 1800s.
Made of solid pine it is fairly large and heavy but has the benefit of splitting into four parts, making it easy to transport and position in any home. The four parts are, shallow base plinth, right and left hand wardrobe sections and top plinth.
This piece has a natural country look which will suit a farmhouse or cottage interior.
The linen press has double arched panel doors to the front, the left door opens to reveal five pull out linen slides set over two deep drawers which are finished with brass drop handles. The right hand door opens to reveal an arrangement of brass hooks to the top and a lift up storage space to the base. It would be quite easy to add a clothes rail if desired.
The wood has a naturally waxed finish which has a nice low sheen finish.
The linen press is in solid structural condition with many small marks of age and use to the wood. There is evidence of old historical woodworm to the base plinth and various other marks and knocks to the wood which give it a lot of character. At some point the interior may have been painted and then stripped, there is evidence of paint to the interior.
Each tall section measures 59cm wide x 178cm high x 54cm deep
The measurements are taken at the widest points and the linen press splits into four parts.
