Product Description

A third generation furniture maker in England recently hand crafted this serpentine chest of drawers with the combined skill of three generations of experience. The resulting work of art would grace any space within your home with elegance and beauty.

Serpentine Chest of Drawers

The name serpentine is given to this dresser because of the shape of the front. The almost ‘S’ shape is reminiscent of a traditional serpent found in images and stories throughout history. When used on a piece of furniture, it is softer and more interesting on the eye than a straight fronted piece. This serpentine chest of drawers also uses fluted and canted (cut) corners to further soften the piece.

Burled Walnut Wood

The wood used is a stunning selection of burled walnut. The burls within the walnut come from diseased parts of the tree which makes this particular wood rare and beautiful. When combined with the special shape of the serpentine chest of drawers the burl is really eye catching. The drawers and top of the dresser are banded with a straight grain walnut cross banding. Further accenting the medium brown color of the wood are the brass pulls and escutcheons. Only the top drawer locks. True to the traditional Georgian style of the piece a brushing slide is just above the top drawer. A brushing slide was historically used for laying a piece of clothing on and brushing the lint off of it before putting it on. A set of sturdy bracket feet finish the bottom of the chest off splendidly.

Hand Crafted

The techniques used in crafting a serpentine chest of drawers have been passed down for generations. The wood is transformed into the proper shape, hand distressed, and hand finished using a seven stage hand finishing process. These techniques combine to give a new piece of furniture the look and feel of a piece of antique furniture. A truly remarkable chest that would warm any room you put it in!
