Object Description

A Very Good Quality And Charming Mid 18th
Century Mahogany Chest On Chest, Or Tallboy,
Having Greek Key Cornice Over Three Short
And Six Long Drawers Retaining Original Brass
Swan Neck Handles Flanked By Canted Corners
Attractive Blind Fretwork Carved Decoration
Raised On Bold Original Shaped Bracket Feet

(This fabulous example of a piece of 18th century
English furniture is both beautiful and functional. It is
constructed from good quality mahogany and retains
all of its original features. As fit for purpose as the day
it was made the large amount of storage is offered in
drawers which still open and close satisfyingly smoothly.
It also has the greek key carving to the cornice and the
beautiful blink fretwork carving to the frieze and canted
corners which adds a real touch of class to the piece.
Finally it is raised on amazingly bold, high, original bracket
feet which give the piece a real presence and importance
in just about any position that it is placed. Definitely a
personal favourite of mine!)
