Century circa 1740 Burr Walnut Portuguese east indies chest on stand. A very fine and well made piece hence it has survived in sublime condition for the best part of 300 years.The frame is all solid burr walnut and looks absolutely sublime from top to bottom. The hardware is all polished brass and looks exquisite from any angle. Naturally the top section of drawers is removable.
The chest comes complete with the original key and locking plate which is removable, the lock and key work but the locking plate doesnt go all the way inside the frame anymore so it cant be locked. Condition wise this piece has been cleaned waxed and polished, I have left the overall finish original however it can be fully restored to include a strip back and French polish should the new owners wish, this restoration would be completed at the new owners expense.
On inspection I can see patina marks as you would expect, someone has heavily polished the brass and there is residual polish left around all the edges which actually help the brass pop. Height:- 135.5cm top to bottom, base only 73cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
