This is a very fine quality 18th century antique linen press made of the finest quality Cuban mahogany. It is a wonderful cut of mahogany which had really good patina and very interesting sweeping grain pattern which catches the light superbly. The cornice of this linen press has an especially fine and detailed dental cornice and lattice work decoration on the front and sides. There is even a clothes brushing slide that pulls our from the front like a bachelors chest. The sliders in the top have been removed from this linen press, but does that make it a wardrobe? Our in house restorers have buffed the show wood to a lovely deep shine using traditional beeswax. You can adapt the inside to take sliders without ruining the original case, you can use it for hanging shirt sized clothes, hide a television inside, or display it in your furniture history museum. It is quite good that something of this outstanding quality, that is around 250 years old, can be bought and used as a useful everyday piece of furniture.
