This is a handsome antique chest of drawers which dates to the mid 19th century.
The chest is made of mahogany and veneers and is heavy, solid and well made.
It is ideal for a bedroom or office, a useful storage piece for any home.
The chest is simply but elegantly styled, the front fitted with five drawers which are finished with aged ebonized knobs. The drawers have their original locks but sadly the key has been lost somewhere in time.
The chest is set on tall turned feet to the front and bracket feet to the rear.
I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black chalk based paint before distressing the paintwork well for an aged look, the finish has been waxed for protection and has a low sheen.
The chest is in good solid condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use. One of the handles has been repaired. Some small areas of the cock beading to the drawers is damaged and the top of chest has some shallow scratches below the painted finish.
The drawer interiors are in clean condition and the drawers run well.
Depth- 50cm not including the knobs
The measurements are taken at the widest points.
