FINE EARLY GEORGE III MAHOGANY SERPENTINE CHEST OF DRAWERS
The beautifully figured timbers with original faded surfaces, the serpentine top with canted corners,
over a conforming case having fluted canted corners,
witih four cockbeaded mahogany-lined drawers of graduated depths
raised on energetic spreading ogee bracket feet; the brasses original, possibly fire-gilt
The energy and timbers in this chest are more than exceptional.
Both the color and condition are what we always hope to find - without tampering and restoration.
When it was purchased it was in dry "country house" estate condition.
The chest has simply had a coat of clear wax of our choice.
