17th Century Marquetry Chest Of Drawers

 

A rare and fine late 17th Century English walnut and marquetry chest of drawers in very good original condition.
The top is a particularly fine example of this type of work, using contrasting light and dark woods. This style of marquetry became fashionable for those able to afford it towards the end of the 17th century and examples similar to this can still be found in some of the finest houses of the period. The top features stylised dolphins and birds.
Examples of this type of chest have been well documented in books on the subject of Antique English Furniture. This piece is a Chest of Drawers unlike many that are in fact the top half of a chest on stand. The bun feet seen here are replaced in the correct manner but the blocks underneath to which they attach are original , this along with the thumb mould to the edge of the top instead of a cornice mould show that this chest had no stand and sat originally on bun feet.

18th Century Walnut Secretaire Chest Of Drawers

A fine and wonderful George I Walnut Secretaire Chest of drawers of outstanding colour with Inlaid starburst, original handles, hinges, fittings and clean original oak linings.
The interior of the Secretaire drawer is well fitted with central door remarkably retaining the original lock and key.
This piece has originally been a tallboy in our opinion but the quality of the veneer work on the top matching that of the front and the wonderful patina it has developed leads us to believe that it must have been converted some 150 years ago. A high quality example of 18th Century English cabinet work.

Early 18th Century Walnut Bachelors Chest

A rare and intriguing Queen Anne provincial Walnut Bachelors Chest of golden honey colour. The piece is in very good original condition with clean oak linings and back boards, it retains all its original walnut veneers and solid sections with very few patches , the handles are replaced , the hinges are original , the top drawer is a dummy drawer and in its place are two drawers that open up from the ends. The top is constructed from two solid well figured matching boards of Walnut, the drawer fronts are Quarter Inch pieces of walnut applied to about the same thickness of oak apart from the bottom drawers that have solid walnut fronts. Remarkably the ends are made differently from each other too, one end is matched solid Walnut like the top and the other end is a four piece match of walnut on walnut ground work. The extraordinary method of construction and bold design with wonderful sweeping ogee shaping to the freeze points to this being a country piece of furniture. It seems that the craftsman was using the materials he had to work with to achieve the best possible affect.
