The 'Birch' series cabinets by Cees Braakman for Pastoe are one of the more desired designs. This model 'DB01' does not come by too often and especially not in this condition and of this early production. The sideboard comes with four drawers and a door with lock and key. Two solid birch shelves, of different depth, are hidden behind the door. This series is famous for the use of the bended plywood legs. The top drawer carries an early Pastoe label. Later versions came with a metal tag.
