ANTIQUE 19thC FLAME MAHOGANY APPRENTICE MINIATURE COLLECTORS CHEST OF DRAWERS Description
This is a really superb antique mahogany apprentice piece chest of drawers, ideal as a lovely little collector's cabinet
It measures 9.25" tall, 11.5" wide and 5" deep
I would think it dates to themid nineteenth century and is possibly Scottish
Consists of three full width drawers. All the drawers are finished with superb flame mahogany veneer and edged with a contrasting boxwood or satinwood inlay ; all three drawers have inlaid ivory escutheons around the lock apertures.
The oblong top is also finished inflame mahogany, withlovely colouring and graining ... really is beautiful.
The drawers have been lined in dark purple velvet. There is no key.
Condition: A really good honest original chest. Obviously some signs of use and age, given that it is150 years old;thereare a couple of losses of veneer to the left hand edging of the top... but essentially nothing that really detracts and doesn't add to character of the piece. The colour, patination and aging is excellent.
A really stunning apprentice miniature piece, but still large enough for practical uses suchas a collector's cabinet.
