FULL DESCRIPTION
A rare survivor, this chest on chest was made by hand in c. 1750 and has a superb colour and very well figured walnut veeners over a full oak carcase. Each drawer with lovely burr walnut crossbanding and brass batswing handles with snape fixings.

The drawer linings are all original - oak with substantial dovetailed joints - and in excellent, usable condition entirely suited to use. The drawers open and close smoothly and are very robust.

The upper case with three upper drawers over three long graduated drawers and this lifts off the lower case for transport. The lower case with three matching graduated drawers.

The side panels in excellent order also with no splits or shrinkage.

Locks present throughout and appear original.

From a local private home where it has been for many decades, this is a really stunning chest on chest. A rare example in excellent condition with only minor dings and marks consistent with age and careful use.

Particularly unusual to find such highly figured and beautiful walnut with burr walnut bandings and of a small and desirable size.

Guaranteed to please.
