With its charming elegance, this Georgian oak antique chest of drawers is ideal for a bedroom or living room setting. It has plenty of character and very nice hardware that will enhance whatever room it is put in.
Antique Chest of Drawers
This dress was made in England during the antique Georgian period. We estimate it to be made sometime around the year 1830. It is solid oak wood which has developed into a gorgeous medium brown color over its years of life. The wide grain of the oak really shows off the varying shades of color that have set in over time. Further complimenting this look are the solid brass, swan neck pulls adorning the drawers. Each drawer also features a lock but there is no key. Over the years the oak has sustained some minor dings to the feet and bottom moldings. These are old and have been waxed in over the years. They now provide a wealth of character throughout the entire chest.
Sturdy Hand Construction
This antique chest of drawers is very strong. It was sturdily built by time honored techniques. For example, the drawers are made with hand cut dovetailed joints on all four corners. Dovetailing is the strongest and most durable way to put drawers together. All of the five drawers open and close smoothly. The bracket feet are still strong and hold the chest well.
The overall condition of this chest is very good. The only wear are the dings already mentioned at the bottom and a small ding to the bottom corner of the beading on one drawer. The chest appears to have been recently polished and the brass hardware is not original. This is a lovely piece that will bring warmth and beauty to any room you choose to place it in!
