This is a superb quality pair of antique Victorian mahogany bedside chests / nightstands, circa 1860, in excellent condition. They are pedestals from a Victorian dressing table, which have been adapted into bedside chests some time ago. Each bedside chest boasts elegant thumb moulded round cornered tops; this design is also reflected in the plinths. The bedsides each have four graduated working drawers, featuring figured mahogany fronts. The drawers are constructed with fine hand-dovetailed joints, mahogany drawer linings and the original mahogany knobs. The drawer linings even boast quarter beading to the frames; this is a true sign of quality. The drawers retain their original working brass lever locks (with working key). The bedsides stand on their original top-quality rounded mahogany plinths. The chests are constructed of top-quality mahogany timber imported from the colonies during the Victorian period. The quality is reflected in the weight of these bedsides; they are heavy to lift!
The Victorian nightstands feature a rich brown mahogany colour. They have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.
These chests would look superb in a variety of rooms from the living room to the bedroom. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

Please note, any colour variation to the tops of the bedsides is due to the natural variation in the grain configuration and patination; this is not a defect or marks to the polish – this is entirely natural.

These bedsides are constructed of top-quality solid mahogany; which gives a superb colour and patination. The quality is reflected in the weight of these bedsides; they are heavy to lift!
