About this item

A scarcely seen Mid Century chest of school drawers designed by James Leonard in the early 1950's for Esavian (ESA) The Educational Supply Association.

Excellent restored condition.

A very versatile piece of storage with twenty equally sized drawers with striking cutaway handles and iconic splayed legs - they are stunning examples of Mid Century furniture, and one of our absolute favourites.

The carcass of this beautiful piece of furniture is constructed from beech, the drawers are constructed from mixed hardwoods.

We have sympathetically restored these drawers to retain their stunning original character. They have been lightly sanded back and oiled resulting in a stunning piece with a rich, warm finish.

These drawers are vintage and have had years of use in schools by children so they do come with imperfections. They will have marks, polished in scratches, nics and the odd dink here and there... which add to their character, vintage appeal and gives a unique aged look - something that new furniture cannot replicate! There are marks etc inside the drawers but these could be easily lined with a paper of your choice if desired. Please see the photos for more detail.

A very desirable piece, in excellent restored condition - would bring a touch of classic vintage style to any interior space.
