Object History


Object Literature

This piece is almost certainly estate made due to the timber used, with cherrywood obviously being available on said estate, and is a very smart and serviceable piece, rare to see in cherry.

Object Condition

The condition proves to be very good and the colour is pleasing. The drawers glide smoothly with the whole proving sturdy and in good original order with the original locks and handles all present, as are the feet, though they have some fissures and nibbled losses. The drawer runners have been replaced.
