Here is a fine quality Victorian three tier dumbwaiter, also known as a buffet server, constructed from top quality mahogany timbers, by Oetzmann & Co. of Hampstead Road, London, circa 1880, in excellent original condition. The buffet features three tiers, each constructed from single mahogany planks, with gallery up-stands and simple mouldings. The tiers are supported by ring turned supports, while the topmost tier is decorated at each corner with ring turned finials. The dumbwaiter terminates on ring turned feet, resting on the original brass and mug castors. The rear of the dumbwaiter displays a label inscribed “Oetzmann & Co, Hampstead Road, London.”

Oetzmann & Co. was established in 1848 and manufactured & retailed furniture until at least 1947, but perhaps as late as 1955. As well as a large trade and manufacturing premises on Hampstead Road, they also had a furniture store on Tottenham Court Road. Besides furniture, they also retailed in bedding carpets, china, glass & drapery and their wares were aimed towards the lower-middle class demographic.

Condition Report:
This dumbwaiter is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the top and leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The item has been cleaned and wax polished in our workshops. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic rich red-brown mahogany colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. The buffet stands on its original brass socket and mug castors. The item is well constructed, solid in joint and is ready to be used.
