Large Antique Painted Black Bow Front Chest of Drawers
This is a handsome large antique chest of drawers which dates to the late 19th century, it is a substantial and evocative looking piece which will make a statement in any room.
The chest is made of mahogany and pine and is quite solid, heavy and well made.
It is ideal for a bedroom, a useful storage piece for clothes and bedding.
The chest is elegantly styled, the bow front fitted with an arrangement of five drawers which are all finished with turned wooden handles and cock beading. The drawers have their original locks but sadly the key has been lost somewhere in time.
The chest is set on tall bulbous turned feet.
I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the paintwork well for an aged look. The finish has been waxed for protection and is fairly matt.
The chest is in solid structural condition with many cosmetic marks of age and use.
The drawer interiors are lined with their original blue paper which could be removed if desired.
There have been various repairs including some internal repairs to the body of the chest. There are old wood worm holes here and there, mainly to the feet and there are dents and scratches to the top of the chest and sides of the chest below the painted finish.
The measurements are taken at the widest points.
