GEORGE III MAHOGANY CHEST ON CHEST
England, circa 1800
Item # 905KUB29A 


Crafted of a dark and dense mahogany, both in the solid and veneer forms, this excellent George III period chest on chest has a lovely overall surface patination built up from years of waxing and polishing over the shellac finish. It is a powerful architectural statement with the toothed dentil molding around the top beneath the bold cove crest molding. Each of the drawers is surrounded by cockbead molding around the crisp and precise hand dovetailed oak secondary woods, this surrounding a smooth and pleasing mahogany grain profile that runs horizontally in the fronts and drawer blades throughout the surface. Flanking the drawers are fluted-and-bevelled corners that terminate in a lambs-tongue. The case is situated over bracket feet with curled returns.

It is a very fine piece preserved in excellent original condition throughout.

Measurements: 75" H x 43" W x 21 1/2" D
