18th Century English Georgian Mahogany Double Chest of Drawers

A delightful 18th century Georgian Chippendale period
mahogany chest having oblong top over unusual configuration
of ten oak lined short drawers, each with original brass handles,
retaining exceptional untouched color and patina throughout
raised on its original plinth base.

(A most unusual configuration of drawers which is rarely, if
ever, seen on chests of drawers from this period in combination
with the overall quality, originality and function that this piece offers
makes for a handsome but also practical and functional piece indeed.
The beautifully crafted oak drawer linings ensure that the drawers still
run as smoothly as the day it was made and the overall proportions whilst
relatively large are not overpoweringly so and this means it would fit into
many a different space in many a different room. Another lovely feature is
the fact it retains its original brass handles, original plinth base and is a very
untouched colour and patina. Clearly the piece has been well loved as
well as well used throughout its 250 year or so history).
