Antique drawers covered with Toile de Jouy fabric c.1890-1910.

Measures approx. L.12.75’’ x H. 10.75” x W. 10”.

The drawer handles are modelled in the shape of solid gilt-coloured tassels.

The drawers overall condition is fair, structurally the item is weighty & robust but the fabric has faded with age & has some creasing & taring though this does not diminish from the beauty of the piece.


I lined the inside drawers with a traditional hand-made marbled paper (colour-way most suited to antique bookbinding) by Jemma Lewis.

My drawer lining is on the wonky side but is not firmly stuck & can be removed without damage. Otherwise the item remains untouched from when I purchased it a year-plus ago from the author of ‘Beauty Restored’ (Instagram: White & Faded).

Perhaps formerly the drawers had role in a haberdashery or a domestic setting as a jewellery box etc?
