An original antique George II mahogany chest on chest or tallboy that dates to 1750. The lower section has three graduated drawers and the upper has a further three wide drawers as well as three smaller ones at the top. All the drawers are lined with quarter sawn oak. The drawer bottoms are also of oak with the grain running front to back as you would expect for a piece of this date. The upper section has canted and reeded corners and there is an oak brushing slide at the top of the bottom section. Top and bottom are original with continuity of design, construction, timber and finish of both drawers and the carcass. From the back it can also be seen that the umber stained pine back boards match as they should. The top sits perfectly within the ogee moulding which forms part of the base. The tallboy is raised on ogee shaped bracket feet. There is an original key which works some of the locks. The brass handles and lock plates are all sand cast and hand finished originals from the period. This chest is an extremely useful piece of classic 18th century English furniture with a number of features that set it apart from most examples as well as being in original condition.
