Grand 19th C mahogany chest of drawers
I've had a few beautiful examples of Victorian chests of drawers before, but I think this is possibly the best. This is a substantial two over four graduated chest of drawers with beautiful form. The chest is in mahogany with beautiful plum gran to the sides. Raised on solid tulip feet and featuring turned hardwood knobs. The drawers are all very clean, in original condition, with very little ware to the drawer runners - the action on the drawers is like a brand new chest. This chest is in superb condition with just a few very minor issues, all commensurate with the age of the piece. The chest has a minor split to the top that has been filled - the repair is solid and well blended. The lower moulding near the rear foot has been damaged in a previous repair - see photos - but is absolutely solid. And finally, one of the drawer knobs has a small piece missing but this is to the bottom of the handle so is only evident if the drawer is removed for inspection. None of these issues detract from this fine chest of drawers, but nearly add to the charm of the piece.
