About this item

1950’s original ministry of defence aluminium industrial multi drawer cabinet. This cabinet comes from the MOD engineering works at the Royal Naval Rosyth Dockyards on the Firth. Exceptionally rare this cabinet was probably custom made at the yard. Aluminium is a very expensive material to use for furniture and it is often used in engineering environments where the risk of sparks needs to be minimised or for weight. The cabinet features a heavily rivetted construction with eight drawers below and five fixed shelves in the cabinet. The piece comes with the original set of keys stamped MOD and all drawers and locks work well.
