Object Description

The stained pine chest of bedside table proportions, probably formerly a pedestal from a desk, having an arrangement of four deep drawers, each showing the original turned ebonised knob handles with locks by Hobbs & Co of London, the dovetailed carcass showing a very good colour and patination, the original dark stained finish now distressed commensurate with age and surviving from the third quarter of nineteenth century England.

Object History


Object Literature

The Hobbs & Co locks suggest this was part of a larger piece of furniture, almost certainly a desk, and it also suggests it was a good quality piece.

A very useful and versatile piece of furniture that can be used in a myriad of different rooms and for just as many uses.

Object Condition

The chest shows masses of character with a good overall colour with wear in the right areas, particularly to the top, commensurate with its age. The drawers run smoothly with the carcass is structurally sound. The handles are original and beautifully worn and there appears to be no replacements pieces or repairs as such. There are good quality locks present but no key, though we could source one if required.
