Esavian A1 size school chest of drawers from 1950s, very good vintage condition, £345

A brilliantly practical and useful chest of 5 drawers from mid century utility greats Esavian, that presents superbly: large enough to make a statement without overpowering a room.

All drawers are sized for A1 paper, therefore offering great versatility. The top two drawers are shallow and wide to make paper storage easy and efficient, (much like a map chest) with the top drawer bearing fully working lock and key for keeping your secret plans safe!

The second drawer is of the same configuration, minus a lock, with the further 3 drawers increasing in depth to offer super storage for whatever your needs. 

Moon disc handles offer a lovely style note – the top two drawers have silver coloured handles, the bottom three have gold.

The plywood top does show some slight marks commensurate with age and use, so please make sure you’ve had a good look at all the photographs. It is however, sanded and waxed to a beautifully smooth finish.

Overall, this is a lovely, rare design, and very sturdy set of drawers which would suit any mid century lovers home, and when in use, the marks do not detract from the overall look of the piece.

Structurally sound and with all the drawers running smoothly, this cracking chest could be equally useful in a bedroom, living room, child’s room or even a kitchen – really, anywhere that you need to store stuff!
