The solid mahogany brushing retains its original pierced drop handles, while the drawers also boast their original brass swan neck handles and shaped escutcheons.The drawers are oak lined, constructed with hand dovetail joints and finished with cock beaded fronts. They also retain their original working locks, with working key. The bottom section terminates on a simple moulded apron, terminating on its original bracket feet. The chest retains its original backboards. Having small proportions, this chest is easily transportable upstairs and is ideal for a landing or a smaller bedroom, where a larger chest would take up too much space. This item is solid in joint and ready to use. The chest boasts a stunning rich brown mahogany colour. It has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. This Georgian chest on chest would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway, to the living room or bedroom. This item would certainly grace any home. So, dont miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture. External Height = 73.7cm or 29 or 2ft 5 Width = 72.6cm or 28 or 2ft 4 Depth = 43.8cm or 17¼ or 1ft 5¼.
