About this item

There are a number of Vanson sideboards available but we have never seen one quite like this. Made in the 1950s, designed by Peter Hayward, it features doors and drawer fronts made from increasingly rare Rosewood, whose dramatic figure and colour have been emphasised by our stripping and polishing, the rest of the piece is made of Sapele, an African hardwood. The gentle bow front and grooved top edge add to the elegance of the unit. There are three drawers, one with a baize lined cutlery section, and two doors all with brass handles. One of the cupboards has a u shaped shelf for glasses, and a central well for bottles. There are some very slight blemishes, we have shown the worst one on the top alongside a ten pence piece to indicate its size.

Dimensions: Width 160cm / 63″ Depth 52cm / 21″ Height 86cm / 34″

Where necessary we strip and re-polish our furniture to return it to as near mint condition as possible. Unless otherwise stated we use professional quality lacquers which meet the requirements of the Furniture Industries Research Association for surfaces in heavy / severe use. Unlike various oils which are used by many people our lacquers are virtually the same as those used by the manufacturers.
