G Plan Chest of Drawers 1958
The 1950s fashion for black legs and brass fittings gave birth to G Plan’s ‘Liberenza’ range. This chest with its gilt capped feet, distinctive ebonised base & tola wood construction make it instantly recognisable as one of several pieces from the range. Not knowing much about tola wood I wasn’t instantly taken by this chest and nearly left it behind. But its charming brass loop handles won me over and a quick paint touch up has made it gleam like new.
