An early 18th century walnut and oak chest on chest. It has the warm simple elegance of this period. The drawer fronts have mirror cut walnut veneers, edged with cossbanding. A neat cornice is made up of crossgrained walnut, as are the reeded applied mouldings around the drawers. The sides are of solid oak, and the chest stands on veneered bracket feet. Brass handles are replacements, dating from about 1770. The drawers have been lined out in green fabric. With a good colour and surface, this well proportioned chest on chest is in excellent condition. Circa 1725
