Description

Early C19th George III period bow-front 'batchelors'-type chest -of -drawers. Most unusually configured bow-front chest of drawers fitted with a brushing slide . The slide is placed in a rarely-featured position beneath the top drawer, in order to be placed at its most practical height. In addition , in another rare feature , the bottom drawer is constructed as two "dummy" or simulated drawers in order to create one single deep drawer, which could accommodate a gentleman's hats or a lady's bonnets.
A wonderful rich original colour, with all original brass ring drawer-handles and back-plates, and original ring-pulls for the slide. Fully oak-lined graduated drawers with cock-beading ,together with original brass locks and escutcheons, and a fully-polished mahogany slide. Moulded edge to the solid mahogany top . Original panelled back .Stands on swept bracket feet, with a subtly-shaped apron frieze.
A rare configuration of a wonderfully proportioned chest-of-drawers, which is both practically and aesthetically designed.
Cleaned and waxed, ready to use.
