This beautiful oak tallboy has been given a full makeover. It is made of solid wood so is very solid and sturdy.

The outer frame of the unit (including the back) has been painted in a light cream whilst the top, drawer fronts, cupboard door and feet have all been waxed with natural beeswax to highlight the natural grain of the wood.

The top section is a useful little cupboard and the door fastens firmly with a catch.

The three drawers are all the same size. There is a little strip of oak at the front, under the bottom drawer which gives the illusion that the bottom drawer is deeper than the others.

The lovely cream coloured bakelite handles are original and have simply been cleaned up and put back on.

There has been some historical borer but this has all been treated and holes filled. There is no obvious damage. There are also two very small marks on the top (which can be seen in the photos) but hardly noticeable and do not detract from the beauty of the overall piece. The unit is in fabulous condition for its age.

Measurements as follows:
Height - 94cms + a further 6cms for the decorative backboard
Width - 66cms
Depth - 42cms

This is a beautiful vintage item with a modern twist and would look great in any vintage or modern décor.
