A fine and highly figured Queen Anne Walnut Cabinet On Chest of good rich warm colour. The piece is in remarkably honest condition retaining the impressive original chased brass hinges, handles, escutcheons, locks and fastenings. The interior is fitted with ten figured Walnut drawers with clean original Oak linings and the original ring drop handles. Hinges of this type have been found on the furniture of London makers, some bearing the label Coxed and Woster, they are often associated with lacquered cabinets, this subject is covered in Adam Bowett's book on English Furniture.
You can clearly see where the veneer has cracked along the line of the cleats to the top and bottom of the doors, this is something we expect to see on these Cabinets due to shrinkage. Many cabinets of this type have replacement veneer to the doors, this one certainly has its original veneers throughout.
The feet are later replacements made in the correct manner for the period.
