This is a very rare outstanding 1960s Esavian Old school cabinet or chest of drawers. Esavian Ltd was a British company specialised in educational furniture (The Education Supply Association ESA). This hand crafted cabinet sideboard was designed by James Leonard, ESA head designer from the 40s brought the 60s. The chest has 20 stylish and very unique drawer with distressed painted fronts in bright colors, each almost telling the story of many children that excitingly opened them during decades of use! This is a very special piece of furniture. The construction is amazing with intricate joints using unconventional joinery techniques giving this piece of furniture even more caracter. It is built in solid light wood, probably Beech wood.
The condition is very good although being well used there are minor marks (as per photo). All drawers run well. ESA stamp present.
