We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients. With our highest compliments and utmost honors Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this wonderful 18th century antique mahogany chest on chest.
The chest is crafted from the best grade imported Caribbean Mahogany with an unusual grain pattern. Caribbean Mahogany is the best in the world with high oil density that gives it its signature sheen and unique mineral deposits that create the dark striations.
The drawer faces are crafted from sequential cuts of mahogany which is why every drawer face has such similar grain. The chest has a desirable 2 over 6 format for a total of 8 drawers.
The chest has a dental carved crown with crotch mahogany veneers below surrounded by a thin molding. The drawers have cock bead molded faces and retain their original locks & escutcheons. The chest has a nicely scrolled bracket base and a really sweet fluted lambs tongue carving along the sides of the upper case. The chest is in fantastic condition with our only notes being age expected surface wear, swapped brasses, a few dental molding pieces missing, & a few places where the cock bead & side molding were broken off and re glued. We've been bothered by only having a couple chest on chests as they've always been a staple of our inventory.This chest does have a few repairs like most do after 200 + years but it's still a visually striking, commanding chest. The chest measures 43 3/4" wide x 21 1/2" deep x 75 1/4 tall. We are a wholly owned family business in our third decade of continuous operation.
