A very stylish Dudley & Co oak shirt cabinet from the early 20th century (circa 1920) with Art Deco styling to the tactile drawer handles. There are 7 glazed drawers over the 3 lowest, which are solid fronted, and they all run smoothly. There is a period paper label on the back and a manufacturer’s plate above the top drawer which says “Dudley & Co, Showcase Manufacturers”.
This is a great piece originally designed as a retail shop cabinet, but it would fit very well with a mid-century furnished home, either as a bedroom piece or as a storage piece in any room. It could even make an attractive free-standing kitchen storage unit.
The piece stands solidly and is in good age-related condition, with 2 small dents in the front left side of the frame which are polished and add to the period feel.
