Wonderful turn of the century store fitting, or as the Brit’s might commonly refer to as a, bank of drawers. Generally, when you find old store pieces they are made from pine and have been given a quick coat of paint. Apparently, this probably came from an upscale retailer who requested their cabinet be constructed from French white oak. After we restored all eighteen drawers, so that they would function as intended, we carefully hand-stripped the cabinet to allow for the aged oak to show through and simply enhanced it just a wee bit. I think this is the finish that most reproduction company’s strive for, but generally fall far short. The uses for something with this many large drawers are endless.
