A wonderful Chippendale Period Mahogany Gentleman’s Press in 4 parts, the dentil cornice with fine closed fretwork frieze in the Chinese Chippendale Rococo taste, above two flame figured, panelled doors opening onto five original Cedar lined sliding trays, the base with two half width and two full width drawers all retaining the original Rococo Brass handles and backplates and retained within a moulding to the top of the separate tray in which it sits, the whole raised on fabulous exaggerated ogee bracket feet.

Note: This very good example has been in the same private home for many generations and has acquired the most glorious patina.
