Purchased from the daughter of a stamp collector, she believes our collector's drawers were originally made to house a very large cutlery set, which was removed by her father to store his stamp collection. Prior to its repurposing for the aspiring philatelist, this simply constructed but beautifully functional piece of carpentry would have been right at home in a smart dining room where it would hold the best silver, brought out and used only for the smartest of occasions, but most certainly polished with predictable regularity.

Our cabinet is now a prop only - the drawers are not functional - it is table top size, measuring 60cm wide by 38cm tall and is still a very fine piece of vintage furniture. 

Inspiration

There is a real romanticism around custom-shaped drawers in the current antiques market. Apothecary drawers and all things related to the print industry are particularly popular. Whilst these drawers were not originally purposed for paper, they could easily fall into the category and would handily store paper products at events, confetti at a wedding or even artisan chocolates for a rather old-fashioned confectionery bar.
