A large Regency period bow-fronted mahogany chest of drawers,
Irish, c. 1820’s
Why we like it
This wonderful example of Irish cabinetmaking of the early 19th century was clearly inspired by the work of English cabinetmakers, the Gillows firm of London and Lancaster, that introduced this design with reeded pillars in the late 1780’s. Unusually large proportions, oak-lined drawers.
Beautifully original unrestored condition, superb rich colour and patination. Later ‘Prince of Wales feathers’ handles.
