Sleek Bath Cabinet Makers late 1960s teak sideboard 198cms

This is one of our favourite British sideboards from the 1960s so we’re really pleased to have another one . The last one we had was about 2 or 3 years ago . It’s 198cms long , 74cms high and 46cms deep . We’ve given it a clean and an oil as it was looking a little tired after some 50 years of use . It’s now looking perky and smart with no obvious marks or bad scratches , but you must expect to see some very minor signs of wear if you scrutinise it extremely closely .  It retains its Bath Cabinet Makers silver sticky label which some don’t , and is illustrated in the 1968 catalogue that we have in our collection , Unfortunately the catalogue didn’t come with a price list , so we don’t know how much it would have been when new .

Bath Cabinet Makers were an old established quality maker who in the late 1950s and early 1960s made some quirky large sideboards . Their designs from the late 1960s may not be quite as good a quality as their earlier pieces ,  but this and another model we have are nicely pared back and sleek in appearance . Maybe not the quality of A Younger and G Plan sideboards that were introduced in 1968 , but so much more stylish and rarer . As yet nobody has come up with  a designer to any of the BCM cabinet pieces which is a shame as whoever it was he or she was very talented . Its in the details that you might spot quality differences with more expensive makers , but its still well made and in comparison with what you can buy today without spending a fortune its a great piece .

At this date BCM was in the same group as Arkana , and the catalogue we have shows designs made by both companies .
