In oak with lines of gouged decoration and brass handles. These wardrobes were designed to go either side of a tall chest of drawers.

The forth image shows the original design including the central chest of drawers. It's signed in the bottom right: EWG, Daneway House, Dec 8 1903

The very simple four-square outline and stark uprights which form the legs is softened by the curved top and bottom and the shaped rails.

This piece was originally owned by Harry Peach.
