Heal's began life as bed makers, in the early days of the 19th century, later embracing the ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement. It was Ambrose Heal who took these principles and developed an individual Heal's style with a range of plain, simple and sturdy furniture, often in plain oak. During the 1920's and 30's the company worked with many leading designers of the day including Mies van de Rohe, Marcel Breuer and Robin & Lucienne Day. In 1933, Ambrose Heal was knighted for raising standards of design, and in 1939 was appointed a royal designer for industry.This piece is an exceptional linen press or cabinet, in mahogany, veneered with coromandel and with ivory stringing, knobs and a checkerboard stringing to the edge of the top. The two-doored cabinet has within a brass rail for hanging clothes and is above three drawers, one inlaid with the mark for Heals. English circa 1920.
