A fine George I walnut and feather banded fold over top bachelor chest. The rectangular top with fine figured veneers, feather and cross banded, opening to reveal a mirror image arrangement of veneers to the inside. The top when open is supported by retractable lopers, with four long graduated drawers below, fitted with the original brass shaped plate handles and lock escutcheons, quadrant beaded edges. The chest is supported on its original shaped bracket feet. In lovely condition, excellent rich colour and patina throughout.

The chest has a wonderful dark mellow glow and fabulous colour. A chest of virtually identical style and proportions is illustrated on page 205 of “The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture” by Ralph Edwards.
Excellent. Minor restorations, cleaning & waxing. Brassware and feet believed original.
