WILLIAM & MARY WALNUT, HAREWOOD & MIXED WOODS MARQUETRY CHEST

 England, c1685

 

 

 

 

The rectangular top centered by an oval sunburst sided by stringing and surrounded by a wide plain radiating band and cross, the

corners with sharply contrasting foliate marquetry of a floral spray and crested birds (possibly jaybirds), over a case with two short and

three long graduated drawers, each with oval panels of marquetry, the first and third rows with foliate marquetry, the second

and fourth with floral marquetry beneath a bird in flight, raised on bun feet.  (The use of birds is quite rare).

 

Condition: Excellent with typical losses and expected cracks to veneer; five patches to veneer in the sunburst; minor expected restoration

to the floral marquetry (invisible except upon close inspection); replaced pulls correct for period, the escutcheons matched to the original

shadowing, and attached with cotter pins; bun feet are early replacements
