Vintage Storage Chest

Vintage Storage Chest

Our vintage storage chest, is adorned with the initials “V.M.” and the label on the inside of the lid states that it was from Frederic Gorringe Ltd., who was originally based on Buckingham Palace Road, in London.

In 1858 Frederick Gorringe opened a small drapery shop in Buckingham Palace Road, London. The shop soon became popular with the nobility and gentry and was patronised by the Ladies of Queen Victoria’s household. Gorringe’s business prospered and by 1869 occupied three shop premises, which were eventually replaced by a large fashionable department store, until its closure in 1968.

This well-travelled piece still has the original clasps, handle and cream striped coloured lining inside and is in good condition for its age and use.
