A fine and rare early 18th-century compact George I figured walnut bachelors chest.
The quarter veneered feather and crossbanded top opens on original hinges to reveal a veneered interior of six book-matched sections similarly feather and crossbanded, above a pair of lopers, one long, two short and two graduating oak lined drawers each beautifully veneered, feather banded and cock-beeded, raised on a moulded base and original bracket feet.
The gilded ring pull handles and oval escutcheons appear to be original.
It should be noted that the chest is of fantastic colour and patination.
Whether you are a collector or a first-time buyer the choice of pieces will inspire. Each has been carefully selected for its exceptional design and provenance, as well as in many instances its academic significance.
