Here is a fine quality antique English Georgian style burr walnut bedside chest of drawers, with a folding top to convert into a writing table / desk, with small proportions, circa 1970, in excellent original condition. The hinged top is decorated with stunning burr walnut quarter veneers. The top folds over, with the support of the twin pull-out stops below, to convert into a small writing desk. The chest incorporates four graduating drawers, decorated with fine cock-beading and Georgian style brass swan neck handles and back plates.
The drawers are dovetailed with mahogany drawer linings. The drawers are in good working order; they are clean inside and close flush to the frame. The base of the chest is moulded with central drop frieze and stands on Georgian style bracket feet.
The chest features a rich burr walnut colour, with a wonderful grain configuration to the front and sides. 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 bedside chest of drawers would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the bedroom. This chest of drawers would certainly grace any home. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

The dovetailed drawers are mahogany lined and close flush to the frame. The chest benefits from a lovely warm burr walnut colour and patination, with a wonderful grain configuration. The chest stands on its original bracket feet. The chest is of extremely good quality.
