Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
To the front of the chest a retractable brushing slide with brass knob handles, two short and three long graduated, oak lined, cock-beaded drawers fitted with original gilt brass handles and bordered by rounded and reeded front corner columns. Beneath the bottom drawer a further cross-grain moulding around the perimeter, the chest being supported on bracket feet, the front ones rounded to follow the line of the front corners.
Small walnut chests such as this, are highly sought after, this particular piece we think may be North Country in origin due to the rounded and reeded column corners to the front of the chest. Of note is the neat way that the outer feather banding on the top follows around this corner shape, likewise the front feet. The chest appears to have been well used throughout it’s life and has possibly been in an atmosphere with a lot of smoke from an open fire thus it’s darker colour and overall excellent patina.
