A very good looking and highly decorative chest of drawers, they are heavily inlaid on all visible sides, the work is absolutely sublime with very few losses which is a credit to the craftsmanship. The drawers are made from Walnut and fruitwood hence the mixture of colours. The drawers include 2 original keys, the locks are temperamental but they work, not bad considering they are the best part of 240 years old from new.We have lightly restored them to include a clean wax and polish, I can have them fully restored to include replacing the couple of small pieces of timber and then a wash back and French polish to make them gallery ready. I havent done it because they dont need the work and I believe in keeping antique furniture with the original patina however if the new owner wishes I can have it priced up accordingly.
