Rare Art Deco oak chest of three long graduating drawers, designed by Ambrose Heal, for Heals and Son. A moulded caddy design top, and front corners, with deco corner carved detail. The original brass ring handles to a shaped back plate.

Ambrose Heal’s [1872 - 1959] contribution to the business, and to British furniture-making and applied design, was his marriage of the ethos of the Arts and Crafts Movement as to beauty and utility with the techniques and economics of commerce. The combination of 'Good Design' with industrial production was contrary to the moral, hand crafted principals of the Arts and Crafts Movement but was in line with the certain European approaches to bringing high calibre product design to a middle class market.
Width 90.00 cm (35.43 inches)
