1940’s English Engineers Industrial Cabinet/Chest of Drawers/Sideboard With Zinc Top


1940’s vintage English engineers industrial cabinet/chest of drawers/sideboard with twelve drawers and a stunning original Zinc top. We have always had a weakness for zinc tops, combine this with our passion for drawers and this is one of our favourites. Dating from the 1940’s this piece would have been made for an industrial workshop, possibly even a printers. The zinc top has a rich patina and the carcass has the original paint, handles and card holders on each drawer. We have serviced all the drawers so that they all run smoothly making this a very practical statement/storage piece. Perfect as visual ‘anchor’ in a living room and/or a study. Whilst this is an industrial piece the warmth and character of the Zinc top will mean it sits well in a family home. Internally the drawers are 8cm deep, 50cm long and 75cm wide.

Workshop Report

Please note there are some signs of historical woodworm which has been thoroughly treated by us. Please check the photographs carefully there is also a small ‘chip’ missing from the carcass just above the top left hand draw which we have deliberately chosen not to restore. Our workshop team inspect every product and carry out any needed repairs to ensure that everything leaves us serviced and maintained ready for many more years of life. All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use and we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
