A Charming Georgian Mahogany Chest of Drawers SOLD
A Very Handsome Georgian Mahogany Chest of 2 over 3 drawers

In excellent order for its age with beautiful figuring to the drawer fronts

Original backboards, key escutcheons, handles and drawer locks (no keys). One lock may be a later replacement

The chest stands on very nicely shaped original ogee bracket feet.

Dimensions 43 ½” wide x 21 ¾” deep x 40” high

Attractive late Georgian / Regency oval pressed brass handle back plates.

One handle pull is a replacement but of the period. The original handmade round brass nuts are still in place on all but one drawer

The chest has been polished with a good quality beeswax to bring out the rich colour of the wood. The original finish has excellent patina

The top of the chest has good figuring with only minor marks commensurate with age Ebony and boxwood inlay banding around the upper part of the chest

The very capacious graduated drawers are all sound in construction and have the hand-cut dovetail joints as you would expect. The drawer linings are oak indicating a high quality of manufacture. The runners are in good condition The drawer base boards are all sound and intact The drawer runners have had pure beeswax applied

Please be aware the chest of drawers is 200+ years old and has wear associated with daily use. For example some minor repairs to the cock-beading and veneer. The softwood retaining blocks behind the feet have signs of some extinct woodworm which has been treated just to be on the safe side

Please view the photographs carefully as they also form part of this listing description The chest is for sale elsewhere and so may be removed at any time You are more than welcome to view the piece at a mutually convenient time (subject to prior sale). The photographs don’t do it justice in our opinion

Collection in person or by your courier (cost to be paid by the buyer). We can assist with lifting the chest if required

We have tried to detail the chest and its condition as accurately as possible.
