It has two short drawers above three full width drawers and they are all oak lined. The top and the drawer fronts have beautiful herringbone crossbanded decoration and the drawers are fitted with decorative brass handles typical of the Queen Anne period.
The chest stands on bracket feet and has the original working locks and key.
This is a charming piece of furniture which not only carries a little bit of history but provides lots of storage.

The Walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
Skeldon House is a magnificent B-listed 18th-century Georgian country house situated in approximately 192 acres of land. The house was owned by the wealthy Duke of Portland in 1867 and in 1908 the famous Scottish architect James Miller carried out alterations and additions including a dome-roofed entrance and impressive south-facing conservatory.
