This exquisite mahogany file cabinet was recently hand-crafted in England by a third-generation cabinetmaker. From the materials used to the techniques employed, every aspect of this piece is of the absolute highest quality, making it the perfect addition to any fine period furniture collection!
Classic Georgian style design
As a traditional reproduction, this file cabinet is designed after Georgian period precedents. The combination of mahogany and satinwood banding is a classic pairing, while the solid brass swan neck pulls contrast beautifully with both woods. Each drawer even locks with a set of skeleton keys made in England just the way they were centuries ago. Finally the ogee shaped bracket feet, a favored design in Georgian furniture, are not only quite beautiful but also sturdy, owing to the immense weight-bearing capacity of the curved joints.
Modern day functionality
Although this mahogany file cabinet is a stunning piece in its own right, it is certainly not without use! The four drawers are quite large and slide effortlessly on smooth metal rails that lend a greater measure of long-lasting stability than the typical wood-on-wood drawer configuration. Each drawer also fits both legal- and letter-sized files, so they are suitable for any office storage needs.
True heirloom quality
Not only does this piece boast a magnificent combination of beauty and utility, but it also promises to stand the test of time. The structure itself is made of solid wood block board with thick mahogany veneers and satinwood inlays. The mahogany and satinwood have been treated to an elaborate, multi-step finishing process that concluded with a fine, hand-rubbed coat of wax, which both enriches and protects the natural beauty of the wood. This thick, quality finish ensures that the wood will survive daily office use and continue to look beautiful for many decades to come. Lastly the structure is sturdy and quite heavy, which helps keep this mahogany file cabinet stable when opening file-laden drawers. Certainly this piece would make a fine addition to any home or office furniture collection!
