Description

Wow! What an absolutely wonderful chest of drawers. This mid-century-modern beauty is part of the Tola bedroom furniture line and Meredew Design ’62 by Meredew furniture manufacturers which were based in Letchworth England for over 75 years. This line is attributed to Alphons Loebenstein. Alphons was the first staff designer for Meredew and was hired after the war. He was 57 at the time, a German emigree, and his ideas revolutionized Meredew as he persuaded them to abandon traditional design and embrace modern unit furniture. This chest of drawers is diminutive in size, but big in style, and just right for some of our current small living quarters. It consists of a stack of 6 double handled narrow drawers held up off the floor on a great four-legged base with stretchers and has a very high gloss finish. There are some age cracks or crazing to the finish and a small veneer chip to the bottom left corner of the bottom drawer, otherwise it is in wonderful vintage condition. We do have two other pieces from this set listed, the wardrobe and a fabulous vanity. This line was produced in a range of woods including: natural oak, natural oak with sycamore, walnut, meremat, merepol walnut, and merepol Canadian elm. We feel this is one of the walnuts but can’t be sure which. We can be sure it is an awesome piece of mid-century modern English furniture.
