This is a lovely 19th Century copy of a Jacobean, Queen Anne small size oak chest decorated with typical geometric carved mouldings. The chest most probably dating back to c 1850, Victorian time, is a faithful copy of 17th Century furniture with the carved mouldings to the front of the three drawers and fielded panels on the sides. The chest stands on turned feet.
I can describe this piece as an attractive, high quality copy of antique furniture with a great deal of character and charm.
Condition report: This small size chest dates back to circa 1850 when craftsmen would re-create faithful copies of furniture of previous historical periods, making this piece some 160 years old! The oak of the chest has been exposed to wood worms – now treated and guaranteed to be free from them, which have further enhanced the character and appeal of this item. The only obvious damage which has been addressed in the past is the top rear right corner where a filler was used to patch the lose wood. There are various signs of age and use especially to the top where there are marks, scratches and dents. The drawers have small dents. All of the above are a testimony of the age and use of this very lovely antique furniture which is full of character. Please review carefully the photographs to see the items listed here.
