GEORGE III MAHOGANY CHEST ON CHEST. England, circa 1800 Item # 905KUB29A. Crafted of a dark and dense mahogany, both in the solid and veneer forms, this excellent George III period chest on chest has a lovely overall surface patination built up from years of waxing and polishing over the shellac finish. It is a powerful architectural statement with the toothed dentil molding around the top beneath the bold cove crest molding.Each of the drawers is surrounded by cockbead molding around the crisp and precise hand dovetailed oak secondary woods, this surrounding a smooth and pleasing mahogany grain profile that runs horizontally in the fronts and drawer blades throughout the surface. Flanking the drawers are fluted-and-bevelled corners that terminate in a lambs-tongue. It is a very fine piece preserved in excellent original condition throughout. 75" H x 43" W x 21 1/2 D. Replaced brasses with some shadowing around present pulls. Veneer patches in numerous places throughout, mostly to drawer blades over locks; spliced curled return on right foot (facing). Old shrink cracks to the sides. Strip of wood added to edge of backboard verso. Chip loss on right side (facing) at back edge of crest molding and small loss to waist molding at front corner of same side.
