Description: 

A superb quality mid 19th century mahogany serpentine chest of drawers in the 18th century style of fine patina (colour).This serpentine chest of drawers consists of a curl mahogany veneered top with moulded and shaped edge.This leads down to four graduated cock beaded drawers, the drawers fronts of finely figured curl mahogany, all with elaborately cast brass Rococo style handles and escutcheons and the drawers being oak lined.The top drawer has a brushing slide recently re-covered with a red baize.The chest has canted corners, these being finely inlaid with boxwood decoration consisting of floral, foliate, ribbon and harebell designs.Below the drawers is a moulding and the chest is supported by bracket feet, the sides are slightly shaped, one side of faded mahogany, the other side less so.This chest of drawers is in excellent condition for age (other than a slight twist to a corner on the top as can be seen in the photos), is of stable construction and can go straight into a home.
