Original Vintage 1960s Ercol 412 Chest of Drawers
Here is classic, vintage Ercol design, this time in the form of a handsome, low chest of drawers. Featuring three generous drawers, this is made in solid British elm and sits on its original castors for ease of movement. Its size is neat so a versatile piece for the bedroom or a family space. You can see all Ercol’s signature features here from exceptional, on-show dovetail joints to the oval inset handles to the superior construction to the beautiful, honey-toned finish on the wood. Made in the 1960s / 1970s, it comes thoughtfully restored but sensitively done to not deviate from the original finish greatly nor strip away its vintage character and history. Do browse our photos – the grain and the finish are gorgeous.
This is an original, used drawer chest that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, vintage condition. The piece has been cleaned inside and out and the external wood surfaces, including the drawer fronts have been restored. This involved careful removal of the original finish, oil and then a durable, natural wax polish. All three drawers slide with ease, feature Ercol’s dovetail joints, their signature recessed oval handles, and have clean, tidy interiors. There are very light, age-related marks and superficial scuffs to the exterior wood but nothing to flag and in line with what you might expect with a vintage piece. Overall, the piece is solid and sturdy and very well made as you would expect from Ercol. The castors roll with ease and the formerly blue Ercol sticker, albeit faded, is still affixed to the back.
