Object Description

A Very Good Quality And Charming Early 18th Century Queen 
Anne Period Walnut Chest Retaining Excellent Untouched 
Colour And Patina Throughout With Well Figured, Inlaid
& Crossbanded Top Over Two Short And Three Long
Drawers With Replaced Brass Handles Raised On
Attractive Replacement Turned Bun Feet

(Its certainly worth considering that this piece of furniture
is over 300 years old, yet as fit for purpose as the day it was
made, as well as being both very beautiful and in excellent condition.
The top, sides and drawer fronts have all been crossbanded and
herringboned and it is always a perceived sign of quality when as
much effort appears to have been made by the cabinet maker to
decorate the sides as well as the top and drawer fronts, as this
was not always the case! Both handles and feet are later
replacements, but that is common for chests of this age due to their
heavy use over many years and certainly both sets of replacements
have been thoughtfully carried out with the newer variants very much
of a design in keeping with the original period of the item. All things
considered this is an extremely useful, beautiful & functional piece
of furniture which has tales to tell from over 3 centuries
of existence already!)
