William IV mahogany chest

An antique William IV mahogany chest of three long drawers of small proportions. With ebony strung edging around the top edge and on the front vertically veneered section above the top drawer (known as a caddy top.) Circa about 1830.

This chest is of good original nut brown colour and patina. The drawer runners I replaced and they now all run smoothly.

The turned knob handles are original (except for one I have made.) The drawer sides are of oak with pine bottoms. This useful small size chest is ideal for a cottage bedroom or a sitting room.

Width 35 1/8 inch, 90 cms
Depth 15 inches 3/4, 40 cms
High 32 inches, 82 cms
