The bedsides stand on the original and recessed moulded plinths. These bedsides boast classic art deco styling in the overall design of the curved corners, clean lines to the tops, the handles and the plinths.
These bedsides boast a mellow golden brown burr walnut colour. They have a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.

Ray and Miles were renowned cabinetmakers based in 34-38 London Road, Liverpool, England, who were first established in 1864. They built and retailed top quality furniture and upholstery during the later part of the Victorian and Edwardian period, along with early part of the 20th century. Their main customer base was the industrial powerhouse region of the North West of England but also sold furniture further afield. The company was later purchased by Maples of London in 1959 (which was an indication of how Ray & Miles were highly admired in the furniture industry), which itself fell into receivership in 1997.
These bedside chests are in excellent condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges and tops, but nothing significant, considering the age of them. The bedsides feature lovely burr walnut veneers, boasting a lovely mellow golden brown colour, on solid frames. The veneer work is in excellent condition and none is missing. The drawers retain the original handles, run smoothly and close flush to the frame. The bedsides stand on the original superbly shaped splayed plinths. They are well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
