This is a classic Victorian mahogany bow front chest. It features a four graduated drawer design, splayed bracket feet, and a great looking flame mahogany. Whether you need an antique dresser for your bedroom, living room, or foyer, this would be beautiful anywhere!
England is where this bow front dresser was originally made and we estimate it was constructed around the year 1890. The hand cut dovetails on the drawers are not only evidence of this but show the care that went into the chest’s construction. While not original, the brass plate back handles are a really good look on this chest. Handles are rarely ever original on a chest as they were changed out as styles changed throughout the years. This chest has locks on the drawers but no key is present.
Mahogany Bow Front Chest
The wood on the drawer fronts is a very lovely flame mahogany. The swirls and patterns of the wood look lovely and this piece would be great in any room with natural light. Setting off the top and helping to showcase the gentle bow front shape is an ogee edge. Finally a shaped apron runs between the splayed bracket feet finishing the bottom off nicely.
This chest is in good condition. The front right foot has a strong repair to it. There are small indents and marks here and there on the piece. They are sporadic and lighter than you would expect from something this age. They are cosmetic only and for most of us lend character to a dresser already rich with history. A small chip is present on the back corner of the top.
