On the old Queen Juliana ferry boat from Harwich to Hook van Holland, traditional 1920s luxury still trumped 60s economy, which was evident in the office of the purser. The man himself, gently smiling like an urbane Dutch bishop, was seated behind a monstrous desk. At his back showed an equally large cabinet made up of spaces to hold keys, mail, fresh newspapers, menus and the occasional telegram brought in by a messenger boy from the vessel’s radio room.
This Ritz Cabinet is made with warm cherry wood and brass fixings. Slightly wider than our Four Seasons cabinet for those of you with lots of books and objects to display.
