(Linen presses became popular throughout the 18th century and onwards,
for as the name suggests, storage of the household linen. They normally
came with fitted sliding trays in the interior of the top section designed to
allow easy access to the folded linen,  however these have now very often
been removed and replaced by a brass hanging rail allowing storage of
clothes on hangers for modern day living. This particular example is a good
functional size, constructed from good quality and well figured mahogany
with elegant oval panels to the doors. It is also raised on its original
feet and these are of exceptionally unusual design which have a
real elegance to them)
