With Block Moulded Fronts Solid Pine with Traces of Historic Painted Surface English, c.1710 40 ¼ ” high x 37 ¼” wide x 23” deep An unusual two part vernacular chest of two short and three long drawers. Constructed from solid pine, with side hung drawers well drawn architectural chest has fielded panel sides and block moulded drawers separated by a bold “D” moulding. The drawers retain their original brass plate handles and possibly later pear drop handles with pierced brass back plates. The chest retains traces of the original buttermilk painted surface and is generally in fine original condition standing on straight through stile feet. Pine was not a commonly used timber in the seventeenth and very early eighteenth centuries in Britain and this solid well conceived chest is a rare example with a lovely pale colour and silvery patination. It bears scars and bruises commensurate with its age and function and remains in good working condition. Pieces of this style, particularly when retaining traces of the original paint, lend great character and style to both traditional and contemporary interior spaces.
