An early Ambrose Heal tall boy in quartersawn oak and inlaid with ebony and boxwood in chequer stringing. This is a rare example from the Heal’s bedroom suite ‘347’ from 1902, illustrated in Oliver Heal’s book, Sir Ambrose Heal and the Heal Cabinet Factory. Interestingly, it is labelled inside with a name and the date 1907, which is probably that of original owner.
