Object Description

A Charming And Very Good Quality Early 18th Century, George I Period, Walnut Chest, Retaining Exceptional Colour And Patina Throughout, Having Superbly Figured Quarter Veneered Top With Crossbanded And Herringbone Inlaid Decoration, Over Two Short And Three Long Drawers With Replacement Brass Handles, Raised On Replacement Shaped Bracket Feet.

For an item of furniture which is over 300 years old it is amazing to note that it is as fit for purpose as the day it was made. It has also remained in remarkably good condition for something that would no doubt have borne heavy usage over the majority of its life.

There is crossbanded decoration to all of the top, sides and drawer fronts, along with herringbone inlay to both the top and drawers. It is always a sign of great quality and craftsmanship when a cabinet maker has put as much effort into the sides of an item like this as they did the top and drawers.

The handles and feet are all replaced, but this is extremely common for items of this age. The replacements are totally in keeping with what the chest would originally have had and therefore look perfectly appropriate on the piece.

Certainly this chest of drawers is both beautiful and functional and would suit a whole variety of spaces around the home in which it may be required.

As with all items which we offer for sale it has been inspected by our highly skilled antique furniture restorers and received a natural wax polish in the traditional manner before being offered for sale.
