Oak Filing Cabinet by ER Staverton
Oak filing cabinet by ER Staverton, UK, c.1950s. The cabinet features a solid oak frame that sits atop chunky oak block legs. It has five vertically stacked hinged doors that flip up to reveal individual compartments separated by two narrow plywood dividers. The right side of the cabinet features a hinged vertical detail that locks in place, flush to the front of the cabinet, with a bronze key that serves to secure the cabinet shut. The unfinished back is stamped with a crown [marked ER Staverton.]
Staverton is a British bespoke office supply company that has been around since 1928 and was known for their use of detailed wood joinery in their designs. In the 1950s and 60s, they secured orders to supply furniture to London hotels and a contract for UK government buildings with casegoods and other furniture, hence the crown marking on specific pieces.
