Miniature Chest of Drawers

England, 1680-1700

Oak, deal drawer linings. Decorative, useful -- and absolutely pure! Original finish (how often can you say that?) of lacquer over stain. Original pulls. Geometric applied moldings -- the pattern on the upper drawer is the reverse on that on the lower, with a plainer one in the middle -- very carefully conceived. A truly excellent thing! Bought from Suffolk House Antiques in 2007 and in a private collection till now. Good original condition.

15-1/2" w x 11-1/2"d x 18" h.
