Handsome Early Victorian Chest of Drawers
A handsome looking chest of 6 drawers surviving from the early Victorian period with a pleasing drawer combination. With its country house look this one would be great in a sitting room or hallway of a period or more contemporary home. We have a line of 3 drawers sitting under the reeded top and sitting under these a fight of 3 graduated drawers which in turn sit on tall bracket feet.
Workshop report – Like many pieces of this era the handles are historic replacements but look the part and are aged in. The chest does have knocks, historic repairs, bumps and the top is marked – nothing fresh. The drawers are running fine with a little wear to the edges and close fine be it a little cock eyed... We would say growing old gracefully, she isn’t perfect but charming all the same. Smells fine.
A grand looking early Victorian chest of drawers with that lived in look which you will not have to be too careful over.
