Learn about Linen Press

Originally a linen press was similar to a book press: the napkins and table cloths were placed between two flat boards which were brought together through a screw mechanism. In current useage a linen press, (also known as a clothes press or gentleman's robe) refers to a type of wardrobe usually with sliding shelves enclosed by doors in the upper section, and drawers in the lower section.
