This reproduction antique file cabinet is hand-crafted by a third-generation English cabinetmaker. Using the finest materials available, including a stunning selection of flame mahogany, satinwood and solid brass hardware, this incredibly strong reproduction antique file cabinet glows with a rich, classic appearance that results from a combination between traditional Georgian style design and high-quality materials. Indeed, the flame mahogany simply looks stunning, due in part to its striking contrast with optional satinwood crossbanding and solid brass hardware, including swan neck style pulls (among other options) and winged escutcheons. Additionally, the wood has been hand-distressed, hand-finished and hand-waxed to produce a deep, lustrous character, while the fine quality of the finish and wax will help to preserve the wood for centuries to come.The great advantage of the vertical file cabinet is that it utilizes space that often goes unused and at the same time saves more floor space than a lateral file cabinet, leaving you to enjoy a larger office. With four full file drawers, this file cabinet also offers plenty of storage space under lock and key, as all five drawers lock. Each drawer accommodates both legal- and letter-sized files and features hand-cut dovetailed drawer joints, indicating fine craftsmanship, and this high standard of quality is maintained from top to bottom, where lovely ogee bracket feet provide strong support (although other foot types can be chosen). The feet used in this file cabinet are quite thick and because of their somewhat arched design and knees, they are much stronger than straight feet, a discovery Queen Anne craftsmen made when perfecting the similarly jointed cabriole leg in the early 18th century. Whether you are looking for an exquisite decorative addition to your home or for a functional file cabinet with plenty of secure storage space, this reproduction antique file cabinet would make the perfect addition to any home or office, representing a carefully crafted combination of superb design and impressive functionality that has been characteristic of fine English furniture for hundreds of years.
