Specifics

Measuring 38cm x 60cm x 37cm in their entirety, this set of four stacked drawers is entirely suited to paper storage. The internal dimension of the solid wood drawers is 34.5cm x 54cm making them ideal for up to A3-sized sheets. The drawers become slightly deeper from top to bottom, with the top-most drawer measuring 5.5cm, the following two drawers 6 cm and the bottom drawer 7.5cm deep.

Story

Purchased from the daughter of a stamp collector, she believes these drawers were originally made to house a very large cutlery set, which was removed by her father to store his stamp collection.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.

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. We have a plentiful selection of unique furniture that you can view here.
