A large cabinet by Willy Van Der Meeren for Tubax, Belgium 1950s.
The cabinet has a black metal frame and back, with blue and grey metal sliding doors with long, elegant fin-shaped wooden handles. The sides of the cabinet are plywood. The interior of the cabinet provides practical and useful storage with three full width shelves - two are adjustable - and two sets of three drawers below.
We have not undertaken any restoration on this piece; there are, as one would expect, some old signs of wear to both the wood and the metal. In the detail, the wear includes light scratches, scuffs, chips, a small dent to the back and a small patch back left where the rivet has broken the wood around it. However, none of these points draw the eye, or detract from the overall appearance, and for us this piece remains in very nice vintage condition with beautiful colour combination and real character. The original lock is in place at the top of the doors (no key) and the doors run very well.
Dimensions: H 200cm x W 120cm x D 61cm or 65cm to the widest part of the door handles.
We also have a small, and rarely seen, version of this design coming to the collection soon. Please contact us for details.
