G Plan Librenza Chest of 7 Drawers

$714.38

This attractive and handsome mid-century chest of drawers is from the 1950s, designed by Victor Wilkins and manufactured by E. Gomme, the company that would become G Plan. The gold E Gomme stamp is still visible on the inside of the top drawer (this was used between 1952 and 1965).

This Chest of Seven Drawers is from the Librenza range, in Zebrano Teak, beautifully made with a fantastic striking finish. The original brass handles are all firmly intact, only displaying wear commensurate with age and use.

Tola (African mahogany) was much used at this time, and when polished has a lovely warm glow which contrasts nicely with the cabinet’s most distinctive feature, the black ebonised polished frame and legs (with brass adjustable feet).

Given it’s over 50 years old, it’s in excellent vintage condition throughout, with no detracting marks or deep scratches (please take care to look at the photos where you will see we have tried to highlight the worst of any obvious damage).

The dovetail drawers are clean, odour free and also run smoothly; the black leg frame contrasts with the leg caps and adjustable feet, made from pressed, spun, brass (unfortunately one of the top caps is missing, this is the back right but this is not that obvious).

Magnificent, versatile, stylish storage that epitomises the MCM era of fabulous, functional, design.

Condition report:
Please bear in mind that all our vintage and retro items have had a life before you purchase them (sometimes quite a long one!) therefore they will show signs of wear and use, these may include knocks, dents and scratches, bumps and scuffs which are commensurate with age and previous use. We never sell items that we wouldn’t be happy to have in our own homes and provide images detailing any significant damage or unusual wear. Please carefully read the details and examine the images prior to purchase. All our items have been thoroughly cleaned and de-greased, re-oiled and polished (where necessary) and are fit for purpose. If you’re unsure, or would like some more information, please contact us, we’re always happy to help.
