Antique Chest on Chest, Linen Presses & Tallboy's

These specialist chests first appeared in the 18th Century and were used in bedrooms and dressing rooms for storing clothes and linen. Antique tallboys and chests were often made from materials which were becoming fashionable at that time, which is why many of these pieces are antique mahogany tallboys and rosewood antique chest-on-chests. Our stock includes period tallboys and chest-on-chests such as George I tallboys, George II tallboys, George III tallboys, 18th Century tallboys, 18the Century chest-on-chests, Georgian chest-on-chests and more. We also stock pieces made by celebrated furniture makers such as Thomas Chippendale and Thomas Sheraton – including antique Sheraton chest-on-chests and antique Chippendale tallboys. Antique linen presses are similar to chest-on-chests, as they have the same construction on their lower half, but open up on top to reveal very shallow trays which enclose clothes and slide outwards - making it easier to see the contents. We stock Chippendale antique linen presses, Sheraton antique linen presses and Regency period linen presses. Our regularly updated stock includes 18th Century linen presses, Georgian linen presses and mahogany linen presses.
