A beautifull antique Victorian five drawer bow fronted chest of drawers with solid brass knobs and locks. Made from solid oak and mahogany with a rosewood / mahogany venner.Superior build quality throughout, clearly a cabinet maker's piece. A real eye for wood used for the choice of veneer on the door fronts, with a particularly attractive finish and graduating colour from dark at the bottom to lighter at the top. Unfortunately the key for the drawers was not present, but a key could be matched or locks replaced if desired. There are a few pieces of veneer missing on edges, as you would expect. The largest piece missing on the top of the side (see photos) is present and would simply need glueing back on.
The rest could easily be matched and replaced or professionally restored, though personally I feel it lends the chest a naturally aged charm exactly how it is. There is likewise some damage to the finish along the top of one draw edge (see photos) , presumably where someone has forced entry at some point having lost the key (it's usually the answer).Again, could be professionally restored but equally adds to the authentic character of the piece. The feet may not be original, though added with proper craft, I don't feel they are original. I suspect this either originally had ball feet or was the top section of a much larger tall boy. That leads me to suppose that is possibly pre-Victorian, however could date from anywhere in the Victorian period or perhaps even as late as Edwardian. Regardless of its exact origin, it is a beautifully made piece ideal for a variety of settings.
