1950s Alfred Cox Chest of Drawers
British manufacturer Alfred Cox produced high quality designs which retailed in Heals throughout the 1950s & 60s. I’ve generally considered their furniture to be out of my league so I was pretty excited when this striking chest of drawers came my way! Made from veneered walnut panels and sat on wonderful angular legs it screams glamour. Unfortunately the one I have looks like it has been through a warzone, and I’ve never worked with walnut so its restoration should be interesting (aka, long & hardwork, urgh!)

I couldn’t believe my luck when I came across another one of these delightful chests literally within days of finding the last! Same as before but the veneer is walnut with ebonised legs & edges. Unfortunately this one was dragged across the floor on its side leaving it with some unsightly war wounds. But I’m hoping some elbow grease will get it sparkling again. Sold**
