About this item

This is a useful little tallboy wardrobe which dates to the middle of the 20th century.

It is a fairly well made piece, made of mixed woods and pine with an evocative style that will suit a vintage inspired interior.

The tallboy is quite compact so will suit a home with limited space, it serves as both a chest of drawers and small hanging wardrobe.

The tallboy has a flight of six drawers on the left side which are finished with stripped wooden handles. To the right the tall door opens to reveal a single shelf, which is probably a later addition as there is a small hanging rail to the top. The shelf can be easily removed if you take to the door off, this could be done if you wanted to use the cupboard simply for hanging clothes.

The top of the tallboy is finished with a small curved back plate and the base is set on attractive shaped feet.

I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black chalk based paint. The paintwork is solid colour and the finish has been lightly distressed and then waxed for protection. It has quite a matt finish.





right hand cupboard space with shelf measures 48cms high for the top shelf and 46.5cms high for the bottom shelf


The tallboy is in solid structural condition with various small marks and knocks to the wood here and there. One of the drawer bases is rather rustic and has bowed slightly over the years, so too has one of the drawer fronts.

There are some old inactive woodworm holes behind the bottom drawer.
