About this item

This item is made up of two identical sets of vintage 1950's Roneo File Index drawers which have been bolted together, mounted on Hairpin legs and topped off with a panel of toughened glass to serve as a Coffee or side table. Stripped and polished to produce a true mirror finish the completed item makes for a truly eye-catching item which would compliment any setting.

The surface areas feature the odd very minor surface scuff/blemish picked up over the years but on the whole the panels are in very good condition while the original brass fittings also compliment the over all look of the piece. The left-hand unit features a fully working lock with key supplied; the lock on the right-hand side unit has been disabled however. The build quality is of a particularly high standard with both units being of a very sturdy structure indeed, typical of Roneo items from this era.

As one potential use for this item maybe that of a centrally positioned Coffee table I decided to also strip/polish the back panels with that in mind.

The hard work and long hours of the refurbishment process have proven very worthwhile. The refurb has been finished off with a final wax to provide added protection and durability.

Before purchasing please bear in mind that the cabinets I refurbish/strip/polish are of a certain age dating from the 1930's to the 1970's approx. Therefore it's highly likely they will feature various signs of wear and tear gained over the years in the form of the odd minor scuff, blemish or dent etc. If there are any imperfections I consider to be substantial then I'll highlight them in the accompanying photos. I'll always do my very best to remove any unsightly marks etc but this isn't always possible. However, I do feel that the odd minor blemish only adds to the character of an item; it demonstrates that it has a history and a unique character. If you are looking for a cabinet with completely flawless/pristine surface areas then you would really need to invest in a modern/present day cabinet which is something I don't provide.
