Antique Black Painted Carved Chiffonier
This is a beautiful antique chiffonier dresser which dates to the 19th century.
The dresser is made from mahogany and mixed woods and is well made, solid and fairly heavy but has the benefit of splitting into two parts, making it very easy to transport and put in place in your home.
The base of the dresser has two carved doors which open to reveal a fixed shelf and pull out decanter drawer to the right. Above the doors are two wide drawers finished with ornate drop handles.
The dresser top is rather grand with carvings, an ornate pediment top and turned pillars set around an arrangement of bevelled mirrors.
I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of water based black paint before distressing the finish for a gently aged look. The paintwork is solid colour and has been waxed for protection, the finish is fairly matt and smooth.
The top of the dresser base has been left in the original highly French Polished finish.
The dresser is generally in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use. There are some small signs of aging to the mirrors, the top of the dresser base has a shadow or mark to the front right hand side and various other marks.
The drawers and cupboard interiors have marks of age and use and the handles are aged looking.
