My client member "condor361".... had this to say after buying a 1920's cedar chest I restored...."Beyond perfect service" & "The chest is really, really great, a job well Chest of Drawers in Golden African Crotch/Feather Mahogany & Black...the amazing wood grains shimmer!!
This remarkable Federal Style chest is World Class..Circa 1920.......... I restored this chest from top to bottom and customized it along the way!
The chest is classic in design,with superb lines,wood grains to die for, it also has drawers that increase by 1 inch in depth as you go down the front of the chest, a feature many consider the gold standard of a true "chest of drawers".The African crotch mahogany is matched over the entire front of the chest. The African mahogany side panels and top have stunning grain textures and grain figuring which appear to shimmer. All of the African mahogany is very thick veneers.
The drawers all feature precision dovetail joinery at all four corners of each drawer.The drawer sides and backs are solid mahogany, the drawer bottoms are mahogany veneers. The drawers have all been fully restored(taken all the way apart & carefully restored.....the drawers slide like silk.The drawers all feature a stiffener piece in the drawer bottom which is a high quality detail from the maker which makes the drawers very strong.The insides of all drawers feature a hand rubbed varnish, bringing out the beautiful mahogany grains.One drawer has a non removable divider in the middle, an nice extra detail from the maker. The makers solid copper medallion is inside one drawer..The medallion says.."Johnson Furniture Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan"(see photo)
I custom made the top back splash trim detail.I hand selected the gorgeous polished nickel hardware...the large rosette back plate and detailed pull make for a winning combination.I hand restored the entire finish including the custom black accents. Many, many coats of hand rubbed varnish that feels like silk,yet at the same time you can feel the wonderful grain textures.I also sealed all of the black with the same hand rubbed varnish giving the black a gorgeous depth & beauty.Consistent with any fine antique, there are very tiny imperfections in the wood..such as small nicks,minor veneer restoration, etc.This chest is in outstanding condition.
The reeded front legs are superb in their craftsmanship and add flair to the chest. This chest is made from all hardwood construction, built like a tank.
A World class work of art...the Mercedes Benz of chests............You will never find another chest like this on the planet!! I guarantee it....
Life is short, surround yourself with stunning beauty!
I proudly present you this masterpiece!!...
all the best, Bryan
