18thC Neoclassical Dutch Oak Linen Press

LOVEDAY
An imposing late 18th century Dutch oak linen press of wonderful natural faded oak colour, circa 1790. Of substantial proportions, constructed throughout with oak pegs, topped by a beautifully hand-carved dentil-moulded segmental pediment, carved with a flower vase and scrolls, above a pair of panelled doors with patera-carved spandrels set within ebonised columns, headed with brass capitals. Opening to reveal two central longer drawers above three shorter drawers with brass ring handles. The lower section having three longer drawers within leaf-carved bracketed pilasters retaining their original handles, keys and escutcheons, set on square tapering feet. A finely constructed linen press, with its light, naturally faded oak colour and ample storage which would have been originally designed to store clothing for an affluent eighteenth-century family. This piece would make a beautiful and useful statement piece in both a contemporary or traditional home.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
