Description / Expertise

An Excellent Quality 18th Century Georgian Mahogany Linen
Press Having Elegant Fluted Cornice Over Superbly Figured 
Pair Of Panelled Doors Enclosing Original Cedar Lined Sliding
Trays Above Two Short And Two Long Drawers Retaining 
Original Brass Swan Neck Handles Raised On Original
Shaped Bracket Feet

(This piece has great elegance for a large, functional and practical
piece of furniture aided by the exceptional choice of timbers selected
both inside and out. The mahogany is highly figured and retains an
excellent colour and patina whilst the original interior sliding trays still
operate beautifully due to the cedar wood drawer lining. It is of course 
extremely rare to find a Georgian Linen Press of any sort these days 
which retains it's original interior trays, let alone one of this calibre. The
item also retains it's original brass swan neck handles and original bracket
feet. Clearly it has been well used, but also well loved throughout the years 
and is still absolutely fit for original purpose. What a great way to add a touch 
of elegance, class and most importantly function to any room in the house.)
