A Stunning Circa 1750 Dutch Plum Pudding Mahogany Linen Press. Traditionally, linen presses were designed to be storage cabinets for storing sheets, table-napkins, clothing, and other textiles. They were often designed to be prominent furniture in a bedroom. This one has ornate carvings such as scrolling acanthus leaves and floral swags with ribbon. It has three lower bombe drawers with brass pulls. A spacious cabinet with plenty of storage space. Eight shelves were added later and can be modified to meet one’s storage needs. It is impressive and ready to store just about anything: shoes, handbags, books, dishes; and textiles.
