Three bays of Staples Ladderax string shelving system in fantastic sympathetically restored original condition from the 1960's. Featuring a desk with pigeon holes and a drop down hutch door, two matching base cabinets with sliding teak doors each with a removeable/adjustable glass shelf, a further teak glass fronted cabinet with sliding glass shelf and finally a book shelf with removeable shelf perfect for your LP/Vinyl collection. Also included are three full depth shelves and one half depth shelf. 

Truly an icon of British mid century design, these modular system cabinets can be moved to any configuration to suit your needs and preferences. In total five Teak cabinets with four shelves and four full size freestanding metal ladder supports.

Excellent vintage condition, everything is complete and original except the desk is missing its key. Even the shelf supports are original. Each cabinet has the Staples label. All the locking nuts that secure the cabinets to the ladders are present which so often go astray (make sure you insist on them being present as they help maintain the structural integrity of the system when assembled). Everything has been checked and all the wood has been professionally cleaned and treated to restore its shine but with a sympathetic eye to retain the lovely aged patina. Ready to go into a room and be enjoyed.

Fully checked and restored and now in excellent vintage condition all ready to go into a room. This set is in remarkable original condition with no major marks or damage. There is a small mark to the top right glass faced cabinet on the left elevation but these cannot really be seen when the unit is assembled. There is some differential fading to one of the shelves where the sun has cast a shadow through the ladder support (please see photograph). I personally think it gives it a unique character and I decided not to sand it down and re-stain it to match. The 4 free standing ladders are in excellent condition no major marks or chips to the metal which is quite rare. All the locking nuts are present. It is sadly missing the key for the desk, theses are quite easy to source, if this is a deal breaker for you then please do ask and I may be able to source one for you. Please click to enlarge pictures for best quality.
