About this item

Stripped/polished vintage 1960s Howden 3 drawer metal filing cabinet.

Please view brief accompanying video -

Manufactured by Howden of Glasgow in the 1960's this 3 drawer cabinet has been meticulously stripped and polished to a true mirror finish. It's capable of accommodating suspended foolscap files, is lockable and comes supplied with key. The surface areas are in good condition and feature only very minor blemishes. The build quality is of a very sturdy and solid nature, typical of Howden items of this era. The finished item makes for a very elegant industrial design piece which would compliment any setting.

The unit has been finished off with a final wax to provide added surface protection and durability.

Please note - the back panels on my items are not stripped/polished.

Dimensions -

Height: 103cm
Width: 46cm
Depth: 62cm
Weight: 50kg

Before purchasing please bear in mind that the cabinets I refurbish/strip/polish are of a certain age dating from the 1930's to the 1970's approx. Therefore it's highly likely they will feature various signs of wear and tear gained over the years in the form of the odd scuff, blemish or minor dent etc. If there are any imperfections I consider to be substantial then I'll highlight them in the accompanying photos. I'll always do my very best to remove any unsightly marks etc but this isn't always possible. However, I do feel that the odd minor blemish only adds to the character of an item; it demonstrates that it has a history and a unique character.
