Vintage Victorian Mahogany Chest of Drawers
This neat Victorian chest of drawers is a beauty. Combining elegant, thoughtful design with practical proportions and much storage, it’s a catch. It’s expertly crafted in mahogany, making it a heavy, solid piece that will withstand a lot of use. Its height makes it perfect for a mirror on top to use as an informal dressing table perhaps. It would also work well in a traditional, country bathroom with lots of space for towels and toiletries. The large, hanging brass handles add a fancy, feminine flourish that we love.
This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. Overall, it is in very good – excellent, used condition. All four drawers slide with ease and the interior wood is in good, clean order (there’s a small ink stain in one of the top drawers). The drawers are well-made with dovetail joints and have large, handsome brass handles that are in excellent order. Sadly we do not have the key to lock the two top drawers. The external wood is in very good order with just minor scuffs and knocks, in line with its age. There is a small notch at the back of the top surface which we’ve shown in a photo but this isn’t noticeable. It’s very well-constructed and heavy which leads us to believe it’s most likely mahogany.
