Description

A small solid Virginia walnut fold-over top bachelor chest of very good colour and patination.
Mid 18th century, George II period, ca 1740.
Raised on apparently original shaped bracket feet.
Only 2'6'' wide, in its original state, including locks and brassware. Oak linings.
Arthur Negus illustrates an identical antique bachelor (or bachelor's) 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 antique English Georgian bachelor chests can fetch very high prices - often up to 25,000.
Commonly the top surfaces have been later set with a leather writing surface.
