These original mid century oak barrack lockers will add character, style and history to your home or workplace. The scarcely seen lockers have strong oak frames and oak laminated panels. The doors have lovely carved out hand holes in which to open them with and inside they have a rail (the locker on the left has a brass rail) shelf and shoe/boot locker. They are ideal for hallways, providing a handsome storage place for keeping coats, shoes and accessories from view, could be used as wardrobes placed either side of a chimney breast or bed, or would look at home in any workplace.

These are beautiful pieces of furniture, very desirable and very functional. If you like character these lockers definitely tell a story. They have drawing pin holes on the inside of the doors where photos and pin ups must have been placed and one of the lockers has what looks like the remains of a poster which will have been glued to the inside of the locker door.

The history of them is revealed from the back of the lockers - each of which is stamped with Her Majesty's initials ER beneath the picture of a crown and FLK36. Other stamps are Enham 1956 (on the locker on the left) which is a village just north of Andover. The village of Enham was one of the original "Village Centres" chosen for the rehabilitation of injured and war-disabled soldiers returning from the front line of World War I. Originally funded by King George V in 1919, the Village Centre became a hub for the care of these soldiers where they were retrained in new trades.

With lockers of this age that have lived in military barracks there are many marks stains and imperfections so please look carefully at the photos before you buy. They lockers have been thoroughly cleaned, treated and finished with a coat of protective Osmo oil.
