An elegant and unusual Mid Century Modern compact sideboard/cabinet very much in the Heals style of the 1950s or early 60s (think Gordon Russell, Robert Heritage or Alfred Cox). Cabinet boasts a rich Walnut grain, thick streamline lipping, gently tapered legs and striking wrap-around tambour doors opened by a pair of minimalist half moon door pulls in brass. Rather than more conventional tambour door design where the inner workings are generally concealed, this cabinet celebrates the working design - having the doors roll back around the contours of the outside of the cabinet.
Inside we have two generously large storage cabinets, part maple/satinwood lined and an extra discreet drawer. At some point two small drill holes have been made at the back to allow for cables. We've left these small holes in as the item is perfectly proportioned to be used as a contemporary media unit.
Item has been cleaned and restored and is in overall excellent vintage condition with occasional and minor age related marks as expected.
