Antique Breakfront Wardrobe / Linen Press
18th century antique breakfront wardrobe and linen press. This is an especially fine example of 18th century craftmanship, all the elements are there, fine timbers, precise construction, crossbanding, stringing, dovetails, tenon joints and best quality handles and locks. The timber is fine figured mahogany with crossbanding made of king wood and box and ebony stringing. The interior is fitted out with full length hanging space either side with a single drawer in each side. The centre section has five linen slides over two small and two large clothes drawers. This is an extremely fine quality piece of furniture made of the best materials during the finest period of English cabinet making.
This piece of furniture has been photographed here before restoration, which is included in the purchase price.

Flame mahogany wardrobe
Antique wardrobe that looks like an antique linen press. This wardrobe has false drawers to make it look like a linen press, presumably because it had a pair that was a linen press, but we may never solve this mystery for sure. The timber is flame mahogany which has attained the most fantastic colour over the last two centuries. There is oval stringing on the doors and interesting decoration on the cornice.
