This is an attractive pair of fine quality English Georgian style solid oak bedside chest of drawer tables by Taylor & Co, circa 2002, in excellent original condition. The chests feature straight, moulded tops, above a bank of three drawers. The drawers are oak lined, featuring dovetail construction and cock beaded fronts, as well as incorporating classic Georgian style brass swan neck handles, secured by circular escutcheons. The top drawer to each bedside also boasts the original working lock, with working key and shaped key escutcheon. The chests are raised on a moulded frame, terminating on Georgian bracket feet. To the rear, the bedsides are date stamped to 13/03/2002, with one of the bedsides also displaying the Taylor & Co. label. The bedsides are well constructed – they are solid in joint and heavy (which is a sign of quality); they do not wobble and are ready to use.
This pair of chests would look great in a variety of rooms from the living room as lamp tables, or the bedroom as bedsides. They are an extremely useful pair of chests to have in the house. The chests boast a warm mellow colour with a lovely patination to the timber.
Taylor & Co:
Taylor & Co of Folly Farm, Haywards Heath in West Sussex, were makers of traditional handmade English oak furniture. Trading until relatively recently, their products included such items as sideboards, dressers, cabinets, bedroom furniture, dining tables, chairs, mirrors and desks.
This pair of chests are in excellent original condition. They have been professionaly wax-polished and the handles cleaned in our workshops. There are no marks, scratches or stains to the tops of the chests. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the mouldings, frame and inside drawer bottoms, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The drawers are free running, close flush to the frame and feature cock beaded fronts. The top drawer to each bedside retains the original working lock, with working key. All brass-ware is present and in excellent condition. These bedsides are solid in joint and heavy (which is a sign of quality); they do not wobble and are ready to use.
