A very rare set of small display drawers dating from circa late 1940’s to early 1950’s. The drawers would have been on a counter top in a haberdashery department or sewing shop, full of the different coloured Perivale silk available at the time. We have not seen many of these display drawers or cases and when we have they have been in nowhere near as sharp and colourful condition on the livery. Much poorer examples with missing livery, scratched and sun faded bring between £200 and £400.
Unfortunately the bottom drawer has been replaced with a later addition and replacement brass handle. We also had to have new glass cut for the fronts of the drawers. However, it is the decorative statement and condition of the livery that sets this beautiful piece apart. A real blast of nostalgia for somebody to look at and admire.
There are good examples of original mid Century Perivale silks available on various sites, should you wish to stock the drawers with similarly aged silks. Please see photograph for example.
