Vintage 1940's stripped & poli. Shed'Art Metal of London' file index drawers. Manufactured by renowned office furniture company'Art Metal of London', this set of vintage 1940's file index drawers have been meticulously stripped and polished to a true mirror finish. I decided to mount the unit on a set of 8 hairpin legs so the item could also be used as a side table.
The side panels and drawer faces are in good condition with only very minor surface blemishes/scuffs. However, the top surface features some surface pitting towards the front edge; highlighted in photo 9. The top also has had four minor holes drilled into it at some point, each measuring 5mm in diameter. The bottom-right drawer is non-original but is of a similar vintage era and is a perfect fit which open/closes flush. The handle on this particular drawer features a minor crack in the metal; see photo 8.
The build quality, as you'd expect from an'Art Metal' item from this era, is fantastic; this is a very sturdy unit indeed. Each of the drawers open/close smoothly while the hard work and long hours of the refurb process have proven very worthwhile. The finished item makes for a very elegant industrial design piece which would compliment any setting. The unit has been finished off with a final wax to provide added surface protection and durability. Vintage 1940's Stripped & Polished'Art Metal of London' File Index Drawers.
