This is a lovely compact 2 drawer chest by E-Gomme the makers of G-Plan furniture. It is a particularly rare piece of furniture from the 'China White' range introduced in 1956.
It's beautifully designed and crafted and features white lacquered drawer fronts with the carcass framed in blonde oak, distinctive ebonised legs beautifully set off by brass feet and matching brass drawer pulls. The top drawer features removable dividers (in brass) allowing the drawer space to be zoned for different uses and it is lined in a blue felt material.
The gold embossed stamp on this chest (photographed) was used by Gomme on the first range of furniture from 1952 and continued into the sixties. It was a 'brand' in the true sense of the word. G-Plan was branded furniture and every piece was marked with this stamp. There is also a stamp GP 13 stamp on the back of the chest.
The chest has been sanded, stained and oiled with osmo oil to bring out the lovely grain in the oak, also the oil acts as a protector against stains and spills. You will notice from the 9th photo that there are some hole markings (filled in) on the right-hand side of the chest which suggest that the unit was partly attached to something. Although noticeable they do no detract from the quality and style of this unit.
It would look lovely in a bedroom either used as a bedside cabinet between twin beds, at the side of a double bed or could be used as a very stylish chest of drawers in a child's bedroom.
