Seller: cyrus1971 (168) 100%, Location: Reading, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 223848501995 Hello,This Gentleman's Wardrobe has been in our family since 1933. I am sorry to see it go but we need the space. I think this is a late Victorian / Early Edwardian item. It is a high quality one for it's type. For instance the interior of the wardrobe doors have a black frame (see pics) which highlights the look. It's the kind of detail that only a good cabinet maker would have bothered with as it is on an inner surface. What makes this wardrobe remarkable is the amazing quality solid Aluminium hangers and bronze runners suit racking system. It can be removed if required as it is held in with screws. It has 12 x coat / suit rail system that pull out and hold the suit jacket on the hanger and the trousers on the rail just below it. It works perfectly and is a really remarkable example of early 20th Century British Engineering made from solid materials and still working 100 odd years after it was made ! More suited to Saville Row than a humble GW. These systems are very very rare and make this a very remarkable piece. In the middle there are 3 shallow drawers so you can lay clothes flat. The very bottom 2 doors have behind them twin horizontal bars for the mounting of shoes. Overall this is a true Gentleman's Wardrobe. I remember as a boy my Grandfathers RAF coat and uniform hanging in it so it has been acquainted with the use for which it was designed and I hope it finds a buyer who will continue in that. I am in RG10 (Wargrave) and welcome visits to see it for yourself prior to bidding if you wish. I have a preference to sell it to a good home or a dealer if at all possible who will see it to a good home. It is in excellent condition for it's age but as it is a quality piece it would benefit from a good deep polish to bring back it's character. Dimensions are 84" Tall, 23" deep and 47" wide. UK Bidders only. I can help you or your courier load it. No postage offered.Many thanks,Cyrus 07718588360 Condition: Excellent condition for age. Working lock and key. Drawers and doors all working well. Internal suit rail also working perfectly. Some wear to bottom of Wardrobe element where the door scuffs (5mm worth) but in keeping with age as are the few other scrapes and dings. No splits, woodworm or other nasties ! A solid piece of very practical furniture., Style: Edwardian, Material: Wood, Product Type: Wardrobes/ Armoires, Original/Reproduction: Original
