Our photos show a mid century chest of five drawers by British manufacturer Schreiber. If you look closely you will not only notice the Schreiber stamp but the rounded drawer backs of each drawer which were synonymous with all Schreiber furniture. The drawers are clean and run as they should, five in total giving an enormous amount of storage, the top being less deep and the bottom being over deep for jumpers or bedding. The unit is also easily movable as it still has the original wheels in place.
We have done our usual cleaning job and it is now polished and ready for use; there is some evidence of age and previous use - this is highlighted in some of the photos.
Schreiber began its success story in 1957 and it took no time at all for the brand to start competing with the established companies within the furniture industry. The company’s chests of drawers, aimed at the bedroom furniture market, were a superb example of the quality for which they became known.
New chests of drawers can often be mass-produced and do not have the history or the features of these vintage originals. By opting for a vintage piece you can add character and charm to any room in your home as well as help save the planet by not throwing perfectly useable furniture into landfill!
Their mid-century modern aesthetics makes them easy to pair with your current interior. These items do not have any outlandish detail, ornate features or curves that will clash with modern styles. They can create the perfect subtle contrast between your other furnishings.

Our Delivery Policy
Safely delivering items you purchase in a timely fashion is both our priority and also one of the most challenging aspects of our business.
In most circumstances, we offer free hand delivery, contact-free, to most mainland UK addresses, either by ourselves or via our dedicated, trusted, couriers. This ensures that your purchases arrive in exactly the condition they were in when you purchased them, as accurately described on our site. You should expect delivery to be within 1 to 3 weeks of you placing the order. We will contact you directly with a firm delivery date and advise you in advance of a two hour delivery window. Free delivery does not apply to areas of mainland UK not covered by our trusted couriers - if this applies to your purchase, we will simply charge you what we are charged for delivery, less any Etsy fees, and notify you of this as soon a practicable after the sale goes through, giving you the option of a full refund.
We are able to package and export items beyond mainland UK and have done so as far afield as Hong Kong and New Zealand. We regularly export to Northern Ireland and Eire and the majority of Europe. Please contact us directly for a tailored quotation.
When ordering, please supply us with your mobile phone number, so we may liaise directly with you regarding delivery. Please advise if there are any delivery restrictions that will apply (such as access, parking restrictions etc.).
Please note that if we are unable to deliver on a pre-arranged day, you will be charged a flat fee of £50 for re-delivery.
