This is a fine quality antique early Victorian flame mahogany four-door chiffonier sideboard, with a breakfront design, circa 1840, in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The chiffonier sideboard has been cleaned and French polished, by hand, to a professional standard in our workshop, therefore the colour and patination is of an excellent standard. There are no stains or watermarks to the top. The drawers and doors close flush to the frame and there are no splits to the door panels. The doors retain their original working locks (with a working key). The carcass is solid in joint with no loose movements and there is no missing veneer. This item is solid in joint and ready to be used.
