Small Georgian Walnut Chest Of Drawers

Small Georgian Walnut Chest Of Drawers (England, circa 1730)


A Very Attractive Early 18th Century Figured Walnut
Georgian Chest Of Rare Diminutive Proportion
Having Superbly Figured Quarter Veneered Top
With Caddy Moulded Edge Over Four Long Drawers
With Replaced Brass Handles Flanked By Simulated
Pine Sides Raised On Elegant Original Shaped
Bracket Feet

(At just 2ft 6in wide this chest is just about as small as
it’s possible to find one from the 18th century and is an absolute
charmer. Constructed from a good quality choice of timber, the
overall feel is of elegance and quality. Almost certainly a country
made piece by a cabinet maker who had been influenced by items
he may have seen in “town” a real effort has been made to create
the best item possible when taking into account the materials
which were available. That is the reason the ends are made of pine,
the cabinet maker clearly just couldn’t afford to buy even more highly
figured walnut which would have been very expensive at the time,
hence the extremely good walnut simulation on the pine ends. The
brass handles are later replacements, but very much of the original
style and it also retains its original bracket feet. All of the above,
combined of course with the size make this an incredibly desirable,
useful and functional little chest that can be put use in so many
different places around the home.)
