Mid Century Vintage A. Younger Ltd Afromosia Sideboard
A British, John Herbert design for A. Younger Ltd. The ‘Volany’ sideboard with its slightly bow front top is another quality piece from this high end British company dating to around the 1960s.
This one seems to have benefited from being placed in a darker dining room with little natural light hence the deep colour of the sideboard with little or no fade. The quality of Younger is there for all to see - solid wood rather than veneer, matching grain to the doors, subtle design and overall quality from top to toe.
Workshop report – The piece is sitting firm with no wobbles, repairs or faults. We have gently repolished the sideboard. The original grained knobs to the drawers are all in situ with no chips or breaks, the interior is very clean with the green braze in place in the sectioned cutlery drawer (slightly worn and could be replaced). We do have one faint cup mark to the top but overall it really is in a fab condition. Also smells fine. Reassuringly weighty and of a lovely deep tone.
We do have the matching slim dining table and 4 chairs if required, please drop us an email or give us a call to discuss. Condition wise they are the same.
Beautiful design and quality from Younger.
