Original Ercol Model 469 Drinks Cabinet / Writing Bureau
This is such a handsome piece of Ercol furniture that continues to stand the test of time. Originally designed in the 1960s and superbly crafted in solid elm, this writing bureau / tall drinks cabinet is in almost flawless condition. It features a fall, pull-down door, along with a spacious two-door cabinet and large single drawer underneath. This versatile piece of furniture provides a lot of storage space and its clever, classic design means it’s not overtly a serving cabinet or writing bureau – it could be used in any room from kitchen to bedroom or study. This particular piece dates from the late 1970s /early 1980s.

This original, used piece is ‘sold as seen’. It’s in excellent, vintage condition with very few signs of wear. We have lightly cleaned the piece, applying a natural beeswax polish. It features visible dovetail joints with the doors and fall fitted with full length hinges. The top cupboard interior is sectioned and has two adjustable shelves. The lower two-door cupboard also has a single adjustable shelf. There is a full width drawer at the bottom which slides with ease and it sits on the original shepherd castors to give good mobility. All interior wood is in excellent, clean order, although there are some minor red pen marks on the inside of the fall door. As you can see in our photos this is barely noticeable. Likewise, the exterior wood is in very good order too, with only very minor marks which we’ve shown in our photos . Do browse through for an accurate sense of original Ercol finish and overall superb condition. Sadly the Ercol sticker is no longer affixed but given its excellent order, we suspect this would’ve been a gold sticker, dating this cabinet to the late 1970s / early 1980s.
