In the manner of William Gomm

A very fine and rare George III Chippendale period mahogany secretaire-dressing chest of exceptional scale and quality. The shaped serpentine cross-banded top with acanthus carved leading edge, with canted corners carved with impressive scrolls and further scrolling acanthus leaves, the top drawer opening to reveal a fitted secretaire with baize lined writing area and pigeon holes and small drawers, above three further full length graduated drawers, all with gilt bronze handles in the Rococo taste. Overall of very good colour and patina throughout.

A very closely related chest of drawers, attributed to William Gomm, was sold Christies, 5 July 1990, lot 149 from the collection of The Lord Leigh, Stoneleigh Abbey, (previously sold 3 May 1962, lot 54)
