About

This superb piece of furniture dates from circa 1800, it is was a greatly favoured piece in its day because of the great amount of storage it gives
The chest stands on bracket shaped feet, the base section has two long drawers and the upper section has two short over three longer graduated drawers. The top of the piece is set off with a plain Regency style cornice which has a boxwood and ebony inlay decoration to the front
The chest has brass oval plate handles and elegant Ivory escutcheons
The chest was made as an alcove piece, as the sides are in pine and have never been veneered, these have shrunk somewhat over the last 200 years but it does not affect the beauty of the piece from the front view
A superb piece of Country House Chic and it is beautifully proportioned and will look just as well in a country cottage
The chest stands 67” high it is 40” wide and 20” deep
