The top section supports a pretty drop down (detachable) protruding cornice, decorated with geometric dentil work and fluting, above two exquisite flame mahogany doors, with inset rectangular panels, decorated with quarter circle sections in each corner. The left door features its original brass strip brass locking mechanism. The right-hand door retains its original working brass lever lock (with working key) and the original key escutcheons and hinges (on both doors). The doors open to reveal a hanging compartment on the left-hand side, incorporating a metal telescopic hanging rail. The right-hand side retains the original mahogany linen trays. Below, is a bank of drawers, comprising three good sized drawers, with two smaller drawers above a larger lower drawer. The drawers are constructed with fine hand dovetail joints and cock-beaded fronts; and the drawer linings and bottoms are constructed from solid ash. The drawer fronts retain their original key escutcheons and brass lever locks. The press is raised on its original bracket feet (which is rare to see, as these are usually replaced with changing fashions or get damaged over time). The linen press also features the original backboards. The linen press dismantles into three sections, allowing easy access up the staircase into the bedroom. The linen press is not too tall either, it’s only 6ft 2” high, which means it will it in most rooms.

External Width (cornice) = 115.3cm or 45?” or 3ft 9?”

Condition Report:
This item is in good condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the frame (see photos), but nothing significant considering its age. There are no splits to the flame mahogany doors (which is common in linen presses). The doors lock using the original brass working lever lock (with working key). The sliding trays in the top left half section of the press have been replaced with a brass-hanging rail a long time ago. The drawers house good quality period replacement brass fretwork handles; the brass key escutcheons are original. The press is raised on its original bracket feet (which is rare to see, as these are usually replaced with changing fashions or get damaged over time). The linen press also features the original backboards.
