An elegant and practical Tallboy in Tola/Teak wood perched on tapered MCM legs. Each of the six(!) deep drawers boast much storage space (drawer depth = 14.5cm) allowing the owner to keep all their clothes and other items all in one convenient unit.
The item features a splendid, slightly tiger striped grain, and contoured biomorphic lipped handles, dovetailed joints and overall fuss-free modernist lines. Although appearing either Danish or British in style, the manufacturer's stamp appears to state "Made In Japan"! If this is correct, it's the only example of Japanese MCM like this we have encountered here in the UK!
The piece has been cleaned and restored and is in overall very, very good vintage condition with occasional and minor age related marks as expected.
