About this item

A vintage chest of five drawers manufactured by Avalon, a British company based in the town of Yatton, Somerset. The company dates back to the 60s, closing in the late 80s; they also made furniture under the names of Wake & Dean and Yatton Furniture.

In the olden days most of the inhabitants of Yatton would have been employed in agriculture. At the time of the Industrial Revolution, a furniture factory was established, initially manufacturing church pews and school desks.

A striking chest of drawers with fabulous walnut veneers, the top drawer has two metal handles in gold, this drawer is also slightly smaller. With dovetail joints, drawers form an angled beehive effect, exaggerating the grain of the veneered fronts not broken up by a handle, these pull from underneath. All the drawers are clean inside, the label is still present in the top drawer and all run smoothly. Cigar shaped hardwood teak coloured legs with brass coloured end caps support this fine example of Mid Century storage furniture.

This piece has been thoroughly cleaned and degreased inside and out,
drawer slides have been given a sand down and coat of polish to help prevent sticking. There are minor dints and some chips to the surfaces of the piece, along with scratches on the brass caps of the legs, as is to be expected of a vintage piece. Please look carefully at the photos as we feel they offer a true representation of this vintage item.

A good sized set of Mid Century Drawers adding great style to any modern home, would look great in a hallway, not just bedroom furniture!
