Description

A small English red walnut fold-over top bachelor chest of good colour and patina.
Mid 18th century, George II period, ca 1740.
Only 2'6'' wide, in its original state, including brassware.
Oak linings.
Arthur Negus illustrates an identical antique bachelor chest on p. 151, fig. 75, in his book on English Furniture, publ. 1969. He states: ''These are extremely rare, particularly in walnut.'
Ralph Edwards CBE FSA in his 'Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture', Hamlyn Publ, London, Fourth Impression 1972, illustrates on p. 205, fig. 24, a bachelor chest dated 1720-1725 of the same configuration, but veneered in walnut.
As such these Georgian bachelor chests can fetch very high prices, often in the region of 25,000.
