Georgian Oak Linen Press
A charming oak linen press chest dating from the early 19th Century. The base contains 2 short over 3 long drawers, each with brass swan neck handles and brass escutcheon plates and it stands on bracket feet with a nice shaped apron. On top of the chest is the press with a wooden winding handle and large wooden screw.
It is excellent quality, very well made and in good original condition with a rich patina. There are general signs of age and use, some marks and light stains and there have been some old repairs over the years but nothing detrimental or untoward. The drawers all open and close smoothly and have been lined at some point with thick grey paper. There are some signs of old woodworm which has all been treated as a precaution and haven't affected it structurally or aesthetically. It has a charming look and it has been given a clean and a wax and is ready for the home.
