Details of Victorian Furniture

Now these are really lovely. 3 sets of plan chests measuring 48 inches wide by 36 high (minus top ) and 39 deep, plus another unit with drawers etc which is longer at 63 inches wide (and alas has a drawer missing). They need a little bit of work at the moment but these things don't turn up often and it'll be well worth putting a bit of effort into restoring these. They came from an old railway building we were working in recently that was being pulled down and these had been used to store all their old railway maps-hence some of the labels still evident inside the drawers. (before you ask, the maps were long gone). They are pine with attractive iron handles and a very chunky top which had to be removed in order to get them out of the building (though they then knocked down a wall for us to make it easier!) They were originally used as one very long unit but they were made as 4 stand alone pieces sharing a single top. This means that in order to use the top and have a little overhang, we will only have enough original top for 3 units, so one will have something different as and when we get around to sorting it out. They may well date from the early days of the railway and would be ideal for an artist etc.
