English Mahogany Bow Front Chest


This antique style chest of drawers is English-made by hand as a Georgian period reproduction. Using the finest materials available, including a stunning selection of flame mahogany, satinwood banding and solid brass hardware, this incredibly strong bow front chest glows with a rich, classic appearance that results from a combination between traditional antique Georgian style design and high-quality materials. Indeed, the mahogany simply looks stunning, due in part to its striking contrast with the crossbanding and solid brass hardware, including swan neck style pulls and oval escutcheons. With a classic two-over-three drawer design, this bow front chest offers plenty of storage space, while the top two drawers lock. Each drawer features hand-cut dovetailed drawer joints, indicating fine craftsmanship, and this high standard of quality is maintained from top to bottom, where lovely splayed feet provide strong support. The feet are quite thick and because of their somewhat arched design, they are much stronger than straight feet, a discovery Queen Anne craftsmen made when perfecting the similarly curvaceous cabriole leg in the early 18th century. Whether you are looking for a decorative chest for your home or for a functional dresser with plenty of secure storage space, this bow front chest would make the perfect addition to any home, representing a carefully crafted combination of superb design and impressive functionality that has been characteristic of fine English furniture for hundreds of years.
