This is a superb quality English George III style flame mahogany chest on chest, of small proportions, which has been constructed in the George V period, circa 1920, in good original condition. The chest on chest boasts stunning grain configuration and colour to the flame mahogany on the drawer fronts and sides of the chest. The chest on chest comprises a protruding moulded cornice above a two-over-three drawer design to the top. The chest consists of two halves. The drawers feature the original brass swan neck handles and circular brass escutcheons, with the original working lever locks and working key. Furthermore, the drawers are oak lined, hand dovetailed and boast cock-beaded drawer fronts. The top section of the chest boasts elegant canted reeded corners. The top section terminates at the base of the intersection between the two chests, where a further horizontal moulding separates the two chests. The top chest is smaller than the base chest, which consists of a brushing slide, above three drawers. Therefore, the piece is very decorative and features lovely proportions. The whole piece is also designed with smaller proportions, so it is likely to fit in more rooms. The sides of the chests are also constructed from mahogany. The chest also features its original pine backboards and whole of the chest stands on its original bracket feet. The top and bottom are completely original. This is an ideal item for the bedroom or landing for storing clothes.
The chest boasts a rich brown mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from bedroom to the landing; it is very useful as there are so many drawers for storage. This item would certainly grace any home. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
The chest is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges and inside of drawers but nothing significant considering the age of the item.

The chest also stands on its original bracket feet and retains its original backboards. This chest boasts a fantastic colour to the flame mahogany.
