Item Details


  • Age: Post-1950
  • Material: Other Wood
  • Original/Reproduction: Reproduction
  • Product Type: Cabinets


We are a small family run company based in South Devon and have been restoring furniture for several years after deciding to turn our hobby into a business. We professionally restore antique and vintage pieces, painting some which need updating and preserving those which look handsome left untouched. We love anything old and antique and take great care in the preparation and repair of all items, treating old woodworm and fixing joints as a matter of course.


This is quite a useful piece which could have a variety of uses, designed to be used as a tall boy this quality reproduction piece dates to the end of the 20th century and is made of mdf and veneers. It is quite narrow so ideal for use in an alcove possibly for use as a drinks cabinet or in a nursery for storing baby things.

The tall boy has a double door cupboard to the top which has a single removable shelf, the doors are lockable and are decorated with beading and small moulded circles. The cupboard is set over a pull out leaf and at the base a further cupboard is finished with a door designed to look like four drawers.

The whole piece is set on shaped bracket style feet and the front is gently bowed.

The shelves are a new addition as they were missing when we acquired the piece.

I have hand painted this piece in 'Hardwick White' from Farrow and Ball, a pale grey shade which is an ideal neutral to compliment many colour schemes, the finish has been gently distressed and then waxed for a durable finish which has a slight sheen.


The cabinet is in very good condition with minor cosmetic marks here and there, nothing obvious enough to mention, the interior shelves are a new addition.


height - 51 & 1/4 inches
