eBay watch: 1950s Robin Day Hilleplan sideboard for Hille

Rob1
Another nice vintage piece on eBay, with this 1950s Robin Day Hilleplan sideboard for Hille perfect for a midcentury-style home.


According to the seller, it was bought new by the previous vendor's father in the 1950s and was situated in their architect designed period property until this year. The seller also adds that this sideboard is quite rare to find, as it was originally only produced in limited numbers due to the availability of the woods used.

That is a figured satin wood body/carcass, cherry wood drawer fronts and elm wood door fronts, with the interior having simple plywood shelves. It is said to be 'structurally excellent', although obviously showing 'signs of age/use' that are commensurate with age.

More images on the listing, including close-ups, if you want to know more about that. It is on a 'Buy it Now' for £795 or you can make a cheaper offer.
