Living in Chilliwack, I'm able to see in person the furniture at Antiques by Design. The furniture is always top quality and good value.

French Marble Top Satinwood 2 Door Linen Press / Chifforobe
French marble top Satinwood inlaid 2 door linen press or chifforobe. This lovey cabinet is in good original finish and condition with the original marble top having a professional repair. The antique original marble top is rich with beautiful color and the repair is not visible but extra care needs to be taken when moving the marble. This cabinet is finished with crotch cut Satinwood and has bandings & stringing’s of other woods throughout. Under the top there is a shallow serpentine shaped drawer with carved floral basket and scrolling foliage applied on the front and the ornate original round drop pulls. The front and back posts on this cabinet flare out creating a bombe appearance and are finished with carved foliage. The front two doors are finished with crotch cut Satinwood with a central foliate carved border and inlaid basket with flowers encasing the lock and original key. These doors open up to reveal the fitted interior of 6 serpentine front drawers with most of the original drop pulls and the rest matching nicely. All of the drawers are hand dovetail front and back. The front and side bottom aprons are lovely and the cabinet is set on stylized hoofed foot
