6337 - Antique Georgian Chest of Drawers – Splayed Bracket Legs – Lock & Key
This superb piece is a fabulous example of late Georgian furniture design … thanks King George III 🤴 👏🤸️! It features;
- solid mahogany timber & mahogany veneer construction
- circa 1800
- hand crafted including hand-made nails
- 3 hand-cut dovetail-joined drawers
- 1 lock, 1 key - top drawer locks (middle lock missing, bottom lock does not work)
- complete brass key holes
- complete & matching brass bail handles
- splayed bracket feet
Condition overview; in fair condition, relative to its age, it is a solid, well-made piece and the drawers and lock work well. As to be expected on a well-used piece of this vintage, it displays numerous general wear, surface marks and knocks as well as a piece of the cock beading is missing to the bottom top left-hand corner of the drawer. There are some age-related changes to the veneer on the left-hand side and some separation of the timber on the right-hand side, however none affect its structural integrity. If only this piece could talk!
Please review the photos and the condition overview as they form part of the description. There may be variances in colour, as it can be difficult to capture exact colour at times. Also, it is impossible to mention / photograph every mark, therefore apart from general wear and tear marks, we endeavour to report and capture as many specific marks or damage, however we may inadvertently miss something. With this in mind; we encourage and highly recommend viewing of items.
