Antique Single Wardrobes were mainly built in the later periods of Victorian and Edwardian eras due to houses getting smaller, so smaller bedroom pieces were needed with maximum storage. These smaller wardrobes were often full length hanging so you can get a surprising amount of clothes in them and also usually come with a handy deep lower drawer for additional storage. They were mainly built in solid woods like Mahogany along with Oak in the Arts and Crafts design. Originally they were built only having turned pegs for hanging clothes in, but quite often a hanging rail can be added to suit more modern coat hangers. The best examples are made from solid woods with a full length figured or mirrored door and quite deep for hanging, also some can have a fitted interior with sliding linen trays similar to the antique linen press. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.

Unusual Antique Victorian Mahogany Wardrobe having Small Proportions
Dating from the early Victorian period, circa 1850, this simple but stylish antique wardrobe is constructed from mahogany and has relatively small proportions. The moulded cornice sits above two beautifully figured flamed mahogany doors with moulded edges and key with working lock. The interior has a single brass hanging rail and has an internal depth of approximately 19″. The wardrobe stands on elegantly shaped bracket feet while its simple and stylish design, heavily influenced by earlier periods, is well suited to its relatively small proportions.
Thank you James, the guys arrived on time, got it upstairs and set up with no problems and no complaints. I’m very pleased with it – it already looks happy in its new home JBest RegardsLiz
