This is a Monumental English Rosewood Linen Press made by Johnson and Appleyard, prominent furniture makers in the mid 19th cen. Made in the year 1861 and purchased from the great nephew of the man who made it. I was told it came from the estate of Dame Edith Sitwell, the well known English Poetess who was born the daughter of a baronet and died in 1964. It is a museum quality piece. This is a massive piece, (9 feet 10 in. tall, 65 inches wide and 32 inches deep). The finials are 12 inches tall and 8 inches wide! It is truely a piece you run across once in a lifetime.
