A late 18th Century English bow fronted chest of drawers. The richly coloured and figured mahogany is inlaid with satinwood, boxwood and ebony to the top and drawer fronts. The drawers are all oak lined (with quarter round dust mouldings at each side) and have their original blue sugar paper linings. The chest has a shaped apron leading into a swept French foot which is the full original height and hasn’t been reduced, as is often the case. All the drawers are finished with mahogany cockbeading, which is complete and have brass locks. One lock is slightly different from the others and is probably an old replacement made using an antique lock. There are signs of old repairs around the escutcheons on the drawer fronts. The chest has been sympathetically restored to retain all its colour and patina and is structurally sound too. The drawers run nicely and do not rub, stick or catch.
