1940’s Large Industrial Roneo Metal Cabinet/Storage Unit
1940’s large industrial Roneo metal cabinet/storage unit. Roneo was the market leader back in the 1940’s/1950’s for these practical storage cabinets. This 33 drawer unit was in pretty bad shape so we decided to have it stripped and repainted in its original blue. We were able to reference the original colour from sections that remained with original paint. A not inconsiderable job as all the brass is rivetted on and must be removed and reattached. We think the result is pretty impressive, returned to its original French Blue. It’s a very practical piece as storage sections easily fit A4 size documents. These Roneo units are also shallow and make efficient storage in halls with limited with. All the ‘flap’ sections operate and close smoothly.
Note: This is a piece from the 1940's so it has a number of small dents and deflections. 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.
