Finding a set of chest of drawers that works for you in your home can be
time-consuming and hard work, not to mention expensive; this vintage Schreiber is a compact classic! Loads of storage, 4 drawers, one that’s over-deep, mobile (this piece still has its original wheels, all in working order) and has a tilting vanity mirror which can also be completely removed and the mirror used independently. Inside the top drawer is the original Schreiber stamp of authenticity. This was probably designed as a vanity/dressing table set of drawers for a bedroom, would suit male or female and would work in an entrance or hallway or even a bathroom.
This Schreiber chest of drawers has certainly stood the test of time with attractive wood grained effect formica and solid teak recessed cup handles, very much of its day, these storage drawers are still in good clean condition. This piece does show signs of previous ownership and use, the worst being highlighted in our photos. However this has polished up well, the mirror is also in good vintage condition and has no chips or cracks.
Our conclusion is that this is a great affordable retro functional set of drawers with mirror !

A bit about Schreiber : -
A mid-20th century company, Schreiber dominated the bedroom furniture market in the 1950s and 1960s with well-structured pieces that look every bit as good now as they did then, both from an engineering perspective and also from a design perspective. One of the first companies to open direct-selling stores in the UK, it also purchased Thomas & Greaves to gain access to the more exclusive upper end of the furniture market.
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.
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.
