Product Description

Made around 1890, this mahogany Scottish chest of drawers is an impressive and beautiful piece of furniture. With six spacious drawers, all constructed with hand cut dovetails, this dresser boasts an impressive amount of storage space. The drawer configuration is a two over three graduated drawer configuration with a secret drawer just above the two small drawers at the top of the chest. The drawers are adorned with Victorian style glass knobs that contrast very nicely with the mahogany of the drawer fronts. There are two beautiful bobbin twist columns going up the sides of the chest giving that true Scottish look to the piece. There are locks with beautiful brass escutcheons, but no key. Perhaps one of the more distinguishing features of this antique Scottish dresser is the fact that it is bow fronted. Finding a bow front Scottish chest with such beautiful barley twist columns is very unusual!
This Scottish chest has an abundance of storage space and is an impressive size. It is also in very good condition. There are very few issues which is great from an antique chest of drawers of this age. As shown in one of the pictures, the right bobbin twist column has a small missing section on the back of it at the top. On the left and right sides of the plinth base are some minor age separations. The top and both sides also have a filled in age separation. This tends to happen on solid wood pieces and is purely cosmetic, not structural. There are small dings in a few spots here and there but overall this Scottish chest is in better shape than most you see. It would be a welcome and warm addition to any home!
