Harris Lebus manufactured a wide range of furniture, which included wardrobes, cabinets, drawers, dressing tables, sofas and chairs, the most common being cabinets and drawers.
Just from the look of Lebus furniture, you will notice that most pieces are made of oak, to enhance longevity and boost aesthetic value.
With only one carefully owner, this is a stunning sixties mid century blond oak and oak veneer chest of three drawers.
Three hand crafted drawers with each one having superb dovetail jointing and offering ample excellent storage, on each drawer front there are two metal, brass coloured, bullet shaped pull handles. This storage cabinet has the maker’s badge still intact on the inside of the top drawer, crafted by Lebus furniture, and was part of the Lebus “Link” range.
This chest of drawers is a wonderful piece of vintage mid century furniture with a fabulous look and design made of oak with a wonderful golden colour that would suit any modern home in a bedroom, hallway, kids bedroom or in an open plan living dining space.
The chest is in good vintage condition and has been degreased, lightly sanded, oiled and waxed to help preserve the beautiful golden colour and graining. Solid and sturdy, clean drawers that run as they should and with original handles all intact.

A bit about Lebus :-
Louis Lebus was a famous Jewish cabinetmaker known for his beautiful cabinets and chests. Lebus emmigrated to the East End of London in the 1840s from his home in Breslau, Germany. It was here that grew a cabinet making business that would go on to achieve great success in later years. Although Louis died in 1879, his eldest son, Harris, took the reins of the business and within a short space of time, the brand known as Harris Lebus was an established manufacturer of cabinetry. Although the business closed its doors in 1969, Harris Lebus is remembered specifically for the manufacture of bedroom furniture and dining cabinets. During its heyday, it became known for the design and build of streamlined and modern designs to satisfy the public demand for sleek, minimalist, pieces.
