An attractive and rarely available mahogany serpentine fronted chest on chest with brushing slide, English circa 1790-1800. Compact and beautifully made, this chest is not too high, but compact, a definite advantage when reaching for the top drawers,!
Well maintained by former owners, it is shown here in best showroom condition, having been lightly refurbished and wax polished. The drawers are oak lined and are running smoothly, with brass swan neck handles and a working key. Between the two sections is a very useful brushing slide which serves as a platform for linen or as a writing surface.
The quality of this chest on chest is excellent with intricate detail to the cornice and fretted sides. There's a well pronounced serpentine shape to this chest and while of compact size, there is an enormous amount of useful storage space. The colour is a delightful rich and mellow mahogany with a good antique patina. A superb chest.
Dimensions:- Height 70.5 inches. Width 46 inches. Depth 22 inches.
