Large Antique 18th Century Georgian Oak Tallboy Chest of Six Drawers English

About the Item

A very tall and highly attractive 18th-century Georgian oak chest of two over four graduated drawers, with beautifully figured oak, brass handles, and escutcheons, raised on bracket feet. The four quarter sawn oak graduated drawers, run nice and smoothly and are topped by a pair of drawers with dovetail joints, which still retain their blue lining paper. When the drawers are removed, there are some interesting decorative carvings on the underside of the frieze drawer - as shown in the last photograph. This is a substantial chest of drawers - with the drawers measuring 54cm in depth - making it ideal for storage. At some point in its life, it has been updated with a change of handle design, and the carcass has been separated into two pieces, making maneuvering the piece much easier. Dowels now keep the piece together for strength and sturdiness. It has seen numerous repairs over the years, which would be expected for a piece that is nearly 300 years old, which only adds to its story and charm. Simply waxed and polished and now ready for use. No keys or locks. Measures: 128cm H x 100cm W x 60cm D (drawer depth 53.5cm)
