Small antique English walnut fold-over top bachelor's chest. George II period, ca 1740.
Only 2'6'' wide, in solid red walnut and in original state, including brassware. Oak linings.

Nb. Arthur Negus illustrates an identical Georgian bachelor chest on p.151, fig 75 in his book on English Furniture, publ. 1969. He states: ''These are extremely rare, particularly in walnut.’' Ralph Edwards in his 'Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture' illustrates on p. 205 fig. 24, a bachelor chest, dated 1720-1725, of the same configuration, but veneered in walnut.
When veneered in walnut these bachelor chests can fetch very high prices, often in excess of £25,000.
