Antique Black Painted Bow Chest of Drawers
This is a handsome antique chest which dates to the late 1800s.
The chest is quite unusual in style with a bow top and tall splayed legs.
Made of mahogany and mixed woods this piece is heavy, solid and quite well made.
It could serve a variety of purposes in any home and would be ideal for bedroom storage or it could also be used in a hallway or lounge as a side table.
The chest has three spacious drawers which are finished with later decorative drop handles set on round back plates. Each drawer has a lock and decorative escutcheon but sadly we do not have a key.
I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the paintwork and then waxing the finish for protection. The paintwork is solid colour and has a smooth fairly matt finish.
This chest is in solid structural condition having been checked over in our workshop.
There are various marks and dents to the table top below the painted finish, one obvious mark, as shown. There are also some small chips of veneer missing here and there.
height- 84cms plus 2cms for the back plate
The measurements are taken at the widest points.
