Detail 1

Detail 2
Small Mahogany Late Georgian/Regency Bachelor Chest
A charming Regency chest with lots of character and excellent patination and colour
Three long graduated drawers over a nicely shaped apron to the front and sides
Sitting on original splayed bracket feet (fitted with metal glides which can easily be removed if required)
Attractive fiddle back veneer figuring on both side panels of the chest

Stylish oval pressed solid brass drawer handles. These appear to be replacements but are correct for the period
Brass swan neck carrying handles with nicely shaped back plates fitted to the sides. Note one of the handle stops is missing

Brushing slide with typical Regency button pulls
Original backboards & dust boards
Hand-cut dovetails to all drawer joints

Dimensions 37" wide x 20" deep x 33" high (a good usable size)

Structurally sound throughout with fully functioning drawers. Beeswax applied to the runners, stops and brushing slide to ensure smooth operation
The drawer linings are constructed of oak which indicates high quality manufacture.
Steel drawer locks in place but sadly no key. Inset brass key escutcheons to drawer fronts

There have been historic minor repairs to the drawer cock-beading and veneer on the top.
Some minor damage / loss to the veneer on the front right side foot and apron (see detail photograph)
These age related issues have no impact on the chest and if anything support its authenticity
There are signs of old woodworm to the backs of the deal / pine drawer fronts. Although believed to be extinct these areas have been treated just to be on the safe side

Overall a superb genuine original piece of very good proportions
