SKU: M167


This is an original, vintage modular piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. It has been cleaned and the teak shelves and cabinet polished with natural beeswax polish. The full inventory for this modular shelving system is:

2 x Tall Ladder Uprights (H: 201cm / D: 35.5cm)
1 x Smaller Ladder Upright (H: 162cm / 35.5cm)
1 x Cabinet with Drop-Down Door (W: 89cm / H: 40cm / D: 35.5cm)
6 x Shelves (89cm x 35.5cm)
14 x Metal Support Rods

There are some marks and scuffs on the shelves (please refer to our photos) but these are superficial and minor, in line with its age and the fact it’s an original, vintage piece.  They would also most likely be unseen as such a system is meant for storage and display. The drop down cabinet is in excellent, clean order inside and with only minor signs of wear on the exterior wood. The drop-down hinges move slide with ease. This cabinet comes with a working lock and key. The gold finished uprights are in very good condition. Again, there are minor scuffs and marks to the finish but once in place these do not notice at all. The original Staples Ladderax labels can be seen inside the cabinet. The nature of this modular system means it can be configured in all manner of ways – we would recommend that there are two people on hand during assembly.

H: 201cm /  W: 185cm / D: 35.5cm
