Chest of Drawers 6312


A superb collector's piece of unique design. Chest of drawers with top which lifts up providing access to open storage area. Front has two rows of working drawers with two rows of false drawer fronts above.
Very good patina and lovely warm mellow faded colour. Beautiful patterning in the grain.
Drawers (and dummy drawer fronts) with cock-beading and with decorative border of chequered inlay in three country woods. Original gilt brass swan neck handles and keyhole escutcheons. Standing on original ogee bracket feet.
Panelled sides, and four panelled back (a sign of quality, commissioned for a wealthy client at the time). In fruitwood, which is always rare as fruit trees rarely grew big enough to make a substantial piece of furniture (and all the boards would have to come from the same tree for them to match).
From Lancashire region, circa 1730 to 1750.
30.5 inches high, 37.25 inches wide, 19.5 inches deep (77.5 cm high, 94.5 cm wide, 49.5 cm deep)
We can arrange delivery, UK and worldwide.
14 day money back guarantee.
