Georgian Walnut Tallboy

Georgian Walnut Tallboy (England, circa 1720)


A Delightful Early 18th Century George I Period
Burr Walnut Chest On Chest, Or Tallboy, Having Three
Short Drawers & Three Long Drawers To Top Over Slide
And Three Long Drawers To Bottom With Replacement
Brass Handles And Feather Banded Decoration Flanked
By Elegant Canted Corners Top And Bottom Raised On
Original Shaped Bracket Feet Retaining Exceptional
Untouched Colour And Patina Throughout.

This particular tallboy is a superb example of its type, remaining
in super condition throughout with very little restoration to speak
of aside from the usual cleaning, polishing and general tidying.

It also sports replacement brass handles, however these have been
well thought out and are of the exact style that the piece would have
begun it’s life with.

Tallboys, or Chest On Chests as they are sometimes known are such
useful, functional pieces of furniture. This item is as fit for purpose as
the day it was made, with the added bonus of it being very beautiful
indeed and that’s really quite something when you consider that it
was made around 300 years or so ago.

It retains its original bracket feet and this is a relatively rare occurrence
on items of this age which have suffered heavy usage over the many years
of their lives.

It also has well finished ends, constructed from well figured walnut
meaning that it looks just as beautiful no matter what it’s positioning
in any room of your choice.

Circa 1720.
