A very good George I figured walnut & feather banded lowboy. The rectangular top with quartered veneers, bordered by a half feather & cross banding, with an end grain moulded edge to three sides. The frieze with a single central drawer bordered by a pair of half feathered drawers, oak lined and double beaded. The drawers are fitted with shaped, engraved brass plate handles, with a shaped apron below. The sides in book matched veneer cross banded to front and rear. The lowboy is supported by beautifully shaped cabriole legs terminating in pad feet.

The use of a half feather, rather than a herringbone, the termination of the molding and feather banding to the top of the drawers (which is not seen when viewed normally) is a feature normally associated with a country made piece. This fine lowboy does have particularly good proportions and also retains very good colour and patina.
Excellent. Cleaning, waxing. Minor restorations to various chipped veneers, brassware replaced.
Private collection Hampshire.
