19th Century English Mahogany Linen Press is a study in stately elegance, rendered in exotic mahogany imported from the Americas and considered one of the finest furniture woods of all time!  The crown features an interesting variation of dentil molding with pendant spires with a subtle gothic style influence.  The crown overlooks the upper cabinet which opens wide to reveal no less than five concealed drawers for amazing storage opportunities.  The lower tier is basically a large chest of drawers with two smaller and two full width drawers for even more capacious storage, accessed with tailored brass bale pulls.  The clean lines of the base recall just the hint of a Chippendale style influence, while the overall design allows the natural beauty of the exquisite mahogany to shine forth.  Note the hand-chamfered solid panels in the back.
Circa 1880s
