A Very Good Quality Mid 19th Century Satinbirch Wood, Childs Size Wellington Chest, Having Eight Drawers With Original Turned Wooden Knobs, Enclosed By Locking Pilaster.

Childs size examples of the typical wellington chest of drawers are generally much rarer to find than their full size counterparts, particularly those that are constructed from a particularly unusual wood, or that are of much better quality than the norm, which this example is both of.

It is constructed from satinbirch, an wood indigenous to the UK amongst other places and as the name suggests a type of birch. When the cabinet maker cut across the grain it would create this incredibly decorative, wavy type effect, hence the satin name. Satin birch wood was mainly used in the mid 19th century, often as a substitute for satinwood itself, which was becoming harder and harder to get hold of and as a result more and more expensive.

This is an incredibly useful, functional and practical piece of furniture around the modern home of course, absolutely perfect for a whole host of places, including as a coffee table beside a settee or chair, as a bedside table, or even as an additional storage piece in a bedroom or office, offering great solutions.

The item comes with working lock and key and just like all the items which we offer for sale it has been attended to in our workshops, by our highly skilled and trained, traditional antique furniture restorers, where it has received a general clean and tidy plus natural beeswax to ensure it is ready for immediate use once sold.

Circa 1870.
