Object Description

17th Century William and Mary burr walnut cabinet on chest, circa 1690. England. Concealing two secret compartments.

The Cabinet
The cross-grain cornice neatly conceals a full-length hidden drawer known as a cushion drawer and two concealed secret compartments. Over two feather-banded break arch doors, opening to a wonderful arrangement of highly figured walnut long and short drawers, each finely feather-banded and lined in oak around a central cupboard concealing a further three drawers, each retaining the original rapusee back plates and ring-pull handles.

The Chest
Moulded to the waist over two short and two long burr/fiddle-back walnut feather-banded oak lined drawers, divided by cross-grain D-mouldings, raised on a cross-grain ogee moulding and bun feet.

The sides are veneered in book-matched figured walnut and cross-banded.

This is a very beautiful and accomplished example of fantastic colour, patination and originality.

Object Condition

Wear consistent with age and use. Fabulous depth of colour and patination. All hardware, locks and bun feet appear to be original. This piece is of investment grade.
