This pair of 19th century "Zanzibar" chests also know as "Dowry" chests are from the Palm Springs Estate of a well known Hollywood "Leading Man." We have an article on the residence with a picture of the chests in the master bedroom. They were used as nightstands and have glass tops on the\m. Priced individually, they are a mis-matched pair as each and every chest is unique, but look fantastic together.
