Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a beautiful 19th Century English late Regency 5-drawer Salesman's Sample or child's miniature bowfront chest of drawers.
The chest has two short drawers over three long drawers with the original unusual decorative knobs. The drawers are also made of mahogany with ebony colored edges and are nicely dovetailed. The top right facing small drawer has dividers with a few of the dividers missing. Each individual drawer has a brass locking mechanism intact with a natural key hole cover, however, we do not have the original key. The chest has inlaid ebony wood band around the top and bottom and has a shaped apron above the original splay bracket feet.
Measures 15 1/4" high, 12 1/4" wide and is 9 1/4 deep. This is a very well made chest and is in very good condition although there are a few condition issues as expected for a piece of this age.
There is a small piece (about a square inch) of missing veneer on the apron of each side and a small narrow piece of missing veneer on the front apron. There is a small narrow length of veneer missing below the top edge of the left side (facing) with small piece of missing ebony trim and a tiny crack in the apron on the front of the chest.There are a few small pieces of ebony trim missing on top edge and some very minor nicks and other minor age related flaws that we have not specifically listed, however, there is no other significant flaws. The overall appearance of this chest is exceptional. Have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
