This is a fabulous quality near pair of English Georgian style solid oak bedside tallboy chests, circa 1970, in excellent original condition. The bedsides mimic the typical design of a Georgian tallboy / chest on chest but on a smaller scale. The bedsides boast lovely moulded protruding tops, below which are two sections of drawers, divided into a narrower top section and a wider bottom section. The top section houses 5 of the 8 drawers, in a two-over-three design. The base section features a moulded edge at the top and bottom, housing the rest of the drawers in a two-over-one configuration. All 8 drawers boast cock beaded drawer fronts and retain their original brass swan neck handles and shaped escutcheons. The drawers are oak lined, run smoothly and close flush to the frame. The bedsides stand on classic Georgian style bracket feet. These bedsides are a matched / near pair and are very heavy, which is a sign of quality. The tallboys have been French polished, by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop. They are single-piece items, solid in joint and ready to use.
The bedsides boast a rich brown oak colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.
