About this item

This beautiful pair of walnut drawers are a must for anybody wanting a solid, statement piece of furniture.

Featuring an unusual and distinctive, decorative hatch effect to the top of each drawer, this pair instantly caught our eye in a room packed full of other wares.

Imported from Virginia, USA most likely back in the 60s, we'd be surprised if they've had more than one previous owner.

Each piece features three drawers and would be the perfect additional to any room of the house. There are very few pieces of mid-century Lane furniture for sale online in the UK right now, most likely as the cost to import them back in the 60s was so high. We've also yet to find an example of a similar piece and for that reason, we do not expect for this pair to be in stock for long.

The following information was borrowed from

Characterised by its sleek styling and quality construction, Lane Furniture has been an iconic American brand since 1912. Beloved by many a middle class family adorning their homes in the bustling post-war times, modern fans are seeing these pieces on the sets of shows like 'Mad Men'.

As with all good things, Lane Furniture started with a bit of imagination and investment. It all began when John Lane purchased a Virginia manufacturing plant.

Their original product offering: boxes. Thankfully his son, 21 year old Ed Lane, took his dad’s encouragement seriously and began to design and build cedar chests. Neither one was sure it would be a success, so their initial products were manufactured under the name “Standard Red Cedar Chest Company.”

The brand became a hit and as they say, the rest is history! Lane ventured into the realm of occasional tables in 1951. Growth came again in 1956 with the introduction of case goods and in 1965 accent pieces were created under the Lane name.

In general good condition for their age, there are the usual marks, surface wear, blemishes and scratches. Each set of drawers have been cleaned and oiled, nourishing and conditioning the wood, ensuring they look their very best for their new home.

Its also worth nothing that one of the drawers has some ink stains on the inside and the top of one set of drawers has also had a small repair job done at some point, as can be seen in the photos.

Each chest measures approximately 91cm long, 48.5cm deep (50.5cm if you include the handles) and 77cm tall.
