About this item

This is a handsome little antique chest which is perfect for an office or bedroom. It is a nicely aged and classic piece of furniture which will look elegant in any home.
Dating to around 1905 the chest is made of walnut, mixed woods and veneers and is fairly heavy and well made. It is narrow and compact, the front fitted with six narrow drawers which are each finished with oval drop handles. The drawer bases are made of thick plywood which has rippled over the years and there are various ink stains here and there.

The chest is set on small tapered legs finished with spade feet and the top of the chest has a decorative shaped back plate. Carved detailing, in typical Art Nouveau style, finishes this piece off rather nicely .The wood has a French Polished finish which has a nice sheen, the finish has been waxed for protection.

The chest is generally in good structural condition but has various cosmetic marks.There are marks and scratches to the top and various small dents and knocks to the chest plus some wear to the polished finish.The drawer bases are a little wavey and have ink stains and some marks.
There is a small mark in the wood near the fifth drawer and an area of wear to the polished finish on the right hand side panel.
