This is a superb quality pair of antique Victorian mahogany bedside chests / nightstands, circa 1860, in excellent condition. They are pedestals from a Victorian dressing table, which have been adapted into bedside chests. Each bedside chest boasts elegant thumb moulded round cornered tops; this design is also reflected in the plinths. One bedside has four graduated working drawers, whereas the other bedside has three graduated working drawers (the bottom drawer is a large double drawer). The drawers are decorated with stunning figured mahogany fronts. The drawers are constructed with fine hand-dovetailed joints, solid ash drawer linings and the original mahogany knobs. The drawer linings even boast quarter beading to the frames; this is a true sign of quality. The bedsides stand on their top-quality rounded mahogany plinths. The chests are constructed of top-quality mahogany timber imported from the colonies during the Victorian period. The quality is reflected in the weight of these bedsides; they are heavy to lift! Ideal for use in the bedroom as bedsides or lamp tables in the living room.

Condition Report:
They are pedestals from a Victorian dressing table, which have been adapted into bedside chests. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges and inside the drawers, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The bedsides have been cleaned and French polished by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop. Therefore, the colour and patination of mahogany is of an excellent standard. There are no cup marks to the tops of the bedsides! These bedsides are constructed of top-quality solid mahogany; which gives a superb colour and patination. The quality is reflected in the weight of these bedsides; they are heavy to lift! They are solid in joint and ready to use. The drawers, which feature the original knobs are smooth running and close flush to the frame. The drawer interiors are dry and clean. The bedside chests are solid in joint, they do not wobble and are ready to use.
