George III Mahogany Linen Press Wardrobe

A fine George III mahogany linen press in outstanding original condition. The press was obviously made to exceed with the cabinetmaker using only the very finest materials in an extravagant manner. An example of this extravagance can be seen on every angle off the piece, you open a drawer and you are greeted with solid mahogany linings, the cupboard doors display the finest cuts of mahogany, veneered onto mahogany, even the backboards are of solid mahogany in a panelled construction.

Traditionally, a ‘linen press’ (or just press) is a cabinet, usually of woods such as oak, walnut or mahogany and designed for storing sheets, clothing, and other textiles. Linen-presses were made chiefly in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries and are now considered decorative examples of antique furniture. Examples made during the 18th century often featured expensive veneers and intricate inlays, and were designed to occupy prominent places in early bedrooms as storage for clothing. Examples from the 18th century are most highly prised due to superior cabinet-work, classic design and exquisite use of materials.

Condition

Excellent, displaying a variety of shades to its original well patinated surface. Bracket feet, handles, escutcheons and slides original.
