Huge Victorian Wardrobe Press.

Whilst the quality of manufacture of antique wardrobes is way above anything you would find today they do sometimes face the problem of just not being big enough for the amount of clothes people tend to have today. This is unlikely to be a problem with this colossus which is newly arrived this morning.

Measuring 8 feet in total length it comprises a full two door hanging wardrobe and a two door press fitted with slides (easily removed for more hanging space) and drawers. With two very large additional drawers in the base. Superb quality, original mirrors and handles. It is going into the workshop for a little restoration, I shall post again when it emerges.
Dimensions: width 96", height 84", depth 22".
