Large Vintage Georgian Mahogany Chest of Drawers
A large, stately, antique Georgian chest of drawers in beautiful, richly toned mahogany veneer. With five generous drawers there’s ample space for storage and unusually it comes with the origin key. Normally these are long-gone, lost over the years. The oval brass plate handles are embellished with a lovely acorn detail. Wonderfully made with fine design details, like the bevelled front corners, this piece will add grandeur to any bedroom.
This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good, used condition. It has been cleaned inside and out, and a natural beeswax polish applied to the external wood but otherwise the original finish has been left alone. All five drawers slide with ease, feature dovetail joints and have the original brass plate handles securely in place. The top tight drawer has a split in the bottom panel but it’s stable and unlikely to deteriorate further. We would suggest adding a drawer liner – see our photo. The exterior wood does carry knocks, chips and marks particularly on the top surface and there is a small mahogany veneer chip at front. Overall these are minimal and we feel do not detract from the appeal of the aged piece. Again, do browse our photos for a good sense of its condition. It’s well made, solid and stable. There is no maker’s mark but its origins are British.
