Never easy to source; these cabinets with their favourable and very useful 7 drawers made by Art Metal, make this one a pretty good discovery. A recent find from a large school, this piece is finished in classic ‘office green’ and is in a good, as found condition, with age making it a very attractive prospect.
Based in Buckingham Palace Road, London Art Metal, made wonderfully engineered steel office furniture with a precision & fit which was a cut above the average. In the mid 1910's they supplied sliding fire-proof steel doors for the interior of the passenger liner 'Aquitania". Their 1926 catalogue boasts of their "Steel Office Equipment. Shelving, Filing Cabinets, Cupboards, Desks, Tables, Safes, Bookcases, Card Index Cases, Plan Files, Plan Drawers, Wastepaper Baskets, Letter Trays, Counter-height Equipment and Steel and Bronze Interior Equipment for Libraries and Banks.
The cabinet is in overall good order with no dents, bumps or cracks just marks from general use and age. Made in around the 1930s by Art Metal of London, it is finished with brass fittings which are again in very good order showing just the right amount of wear. The drawers are running freely and are fitted internally with removable dividers that slide along the drawer base depending on requirements.
This very good looking cabinet/chest of drawers proposes a variety of uses - in the bedroom for clothes, in the office for files, kitchen/diner for storage and in bathrooms for storing towels to name a few…
It’s a handsome looking piece of furniture which is well made and hits the spot on looks.
