An English antique oak chest of drawers. Charles II period (1630-1685).
The drawer fronts with walnut inserts. The substantial moulded top has cleated ends.
Containing four full-length pull-out drawers, the top drawer fitted with divisions, and centered by an unusual applied carved panel.
All drawers with side runners typical of 17th century construction.
Raised on short ‘stile’ feet.
The ends are paneled, and the base retains the original bold moulding.
Brass key escutcheons apparently original, the ring handles are 18th century replacements – which are very much in keeping.
Excellent condition overall, with an old waxed surface of very good rich colour.
