Description

A good small English Regency period rosewood & brass inlaid cabinet bookcase/ chiffonier of excellent colour, and in superb condition.
This good quality cabinet or open bookcase survives with its original brassware.

A versatile antique that would also make an attractive drinks, TV or hi-fi cabinet, or sideboard.

The eminent cabinet-makers John McLean & Son (1770-1815) were responsible for the very best of these brass-inlaid chiffoniers.

This one on offer is close to some of their designs. Often their furniture bears a trade label – vis. V&A Museum, London.
