The chest on chest boasts stunning grain configuration and colour to the figured walnut on the drawer fronts and sides of the chest. Constructed during the Edwardian period, it comprises a protruding moulded cornice above a two-over-three drawer design to the top. The chest consists of two halves. The drawers feature the original brass swan neck handles and shaped brass fretwork escutcheons, with the original working lever locks and working key. Furthermore, the drawers are oak lined and hand dovetailed. The drawer fronts exhibit moulded edges, with walnut cross banding, as well as fine feather banding. The top section of the chest boasts elegant canted reeded corners. The top section terminates at the base of the intersection between the two chests, where a further horizontal moulding separates the two chests. The top chest is smaller than the base chest, which consists of a brushing slide, above three drawers. The bottom-most drawer boasts a concave demi-lune niche, which displays walnut & satinwood inlay in the shape of a sunburst. Therefore, the piece is very decorative and features lovely proportions. The whole piece is also designed with smaller proportions, so it is likely to fit in more rooms. The sides of the chests are also constructed from walnut. The chest also features its original pine backboards and whole of the chest stands on its original bracket feet. The top and bottom are completely original.

Condition Report:
The chest is in good original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. All eight drawers feature the original brass swan neck handles, fretwork escutcheons and close flush to the frame. The drawers retain their original working lever locks and there is a working key. All the veneer and inlay is present and in good condition. The chest also stands on its original bracket feet and retains its original backboards. This chest boasts its original polish, which ensures a fantastic colour. It is solid in joint, does not wobble and is ready to be used.
