A beautiful scale example of a mahogany two over two chest of drawers adorned with brass loop drop handles depicting the ‘Green man’. Raised on iron castors the cabinet has a deep plinth and reeded front supports with a graduated top. The drawers are constructed of pine lining with a thick mahogany dovetail applied front elevation; the bottom draw houses a secure 2 lever lock (no key) with escutcheon to front. The mahogany has a rich warm patina with some graduated fade to the front of the top surface; some minor scratches as expected with age and use.
This chest of drawers in original and un-restored condition is of scale proportions; a craftsman made, heavy piece of furniture believed to have been made as a shop display to advertise a carpenter’s wares not as often marketed an apprentice piece as the use of quality materials and craftsmanship are signs of a skilled cabinet maker.
A pretty piece of furniture with a sense of history this would make an ideal jewellery box or a place to hide treasured possessions.
