Object Description

A Delightful Early 18th Century George I Period 
Burr Walnut Chest On Chest, Or Tallboy, Having Three
Short Drawers & Three Long Drawers To Top Over Slide
And Three Long Drawers To Bottom With Replacement 
Brass Handles And Feather Banded Decoration Flanked
By Elegant Canted Corners Top And Bottom Raised On 
Original Shaped Bracket Feet Retaining Exceptional 
Untouched Colour And Patina Throughout

(This is a wonderful example of its type and remains super condition
with very little restoration to speak of other than cleaning, polishing and
the replacement brass handles which are exactly the style it would have
begun life with. Such a useful piece of furniture at the same time as being
very beautiful it is still as fit for purpose as the day it was made around
300 years ago. It retains it’s original bracket feet which is a relatively
rare occurrence on pieces of this age which have been well used over
the years and unlike some items from this period the ends are also 
finished with well figured walnut meaning that it looks just as beautiful 
no matter what position it is placed in any room and no matter
what angle it is being viewed from.)
