Object Description

A Delightful Early 18th Century Queen Anne Period
Walnut Chest Having Superbly Figured Quarter Veneered
Top Over Two Short And Three Long Drawers With Replaced
Brass Handles And Elegant Herringbone Banded Decoration
Throughout Raised On Replacement Turned Bun Feet

(Take a moment to consider worth that this piece is over 300
years old, yet as fit for purpose as the day it was made, as well
as being being beautiful and attractive. The top has been quarter
veneered which is always a sign of quality and its although both
the handles and feet are later replacements, which is most common
for chests of this age, both been thoughtfully done and the newer
variants are very much of the design which would have been in
place originally. Another nice feature of this piece is the well
figured and banded ends which clearly great effort has been put
into and that is not very often the case on items this made this early
with the ends generally an afterthought. All in all an extremely useful,
beautiful & functional piece that has been in existence for 3 centuries already!)
