A beautiful and rare full set of Architect’s/ Plan Drawers in oak, manufactured by Abbess. Abbess manufactured many types of utilitarian Government and School office equipment as they were renowned for their high quality at affordable prices.
This is a rare large architect’s/ plan chest with 9 full size drawers. It is constructed from good quality solid oak (framework, drawer fronts and handles). The sides and top are oak veneer. The drawer internals are pine. Original central recessed drawer label holders are are still in tact and in beautiful condition. Brass label holders have been added at a later date but do have some age and a nice ageing patina. The chest does split in to three sections for easier transportation and locating to the position you wish. All three sections holds three drawers when separated.
This piece is in great original condition, very clean, structurally solid with just a few old marks. Please see photo graphs for full condition.
9 very large, clean and very usable drawers. Stunning all round colour, amazing original drawers and handles. Fantastically on trend styling that will just keep getting better with age. Very hard to find chests of this size and age that are complete and in excellent original condition!
