A remarkable antique school laboratory counter.
A beautiful & rare English school laboratory counter, the four drawers with their original brass cup handles above a double cupboard with panelled doors & inset brass handles. The pitch pine frontage & iroko top both boast an exquisite depth of colour & patina with the charming old carved graffiti testament to its years of former service in a school laboratory. The centre of the top retains its original lift-out hatch which once sat over a built in sink & the middle 'drawer' is in fact a hinged flap which allowed access to the lower part of the sink.
An extremely hard-to-find & handsome piece of industrial furniture.
Early 20th century.
Wear commensurate with age, solid & displays beautifully. The top has a few original holes where the old bunsen burners & taps were once situated & the rear right hand end has a couple of historic but later pine 'noggins' of wood, likely where the plumbing originally ran through the banks of counters. Ply back panel recent, all other timbers original.
Collection from our warehouse in Downham Market (PE38) preferred, UK courier service possible, please enquire for details.
