This gorgeous wardrobe is from the Utility Furniture range that was available during and after WW2.


I love this wardrobe and the history behind it, but unfortunately we just don't have the space for it.


Here's some information on Utility Furniture taken from Wikipedia:

Utility furniture refers to furniture produced in the United Kingdom during and just after World War II, under a Government scheme which was designed to cope with shortages of raw materials and rationing of consumption. Introduced in 1942, the Utility Furniture Scheme continued into post-war austerity and lasted until 1952.


By 1941 it had become apparent that the combination of a severe lack of timber suitable for furniture making (in which Britain was not self-sufficient) and the increased demand for new furniture due to the losses of housing caused by bombing and to the continuing establishment of new households after marriage, had created a severe furniture shortage.


It does smell a bit musty, hence the low starting price, but I've been advised that that can be got rid of.


If you have any questions, please do ask.
