Chest of drawers

Antique chest of drawers made in New Zealand. The drawer fronts are veneered with exotic Kauri wood which is indigenous to New Zealand. Colonial furniture is much rarer than that made in the UK and so if a piece can be proven to have been made abroad so much the better.

19th century antique French Commode

Very nice early nineteenth century French Commode (or chest of drawers) with detailed and generous apron frieze with moulded edge and moulded edge to the top, drawers and around all panels, the front of the chest with very fine scalloped detail, sculpted down the front to the centre and sides and with shaped coffered sections to the sides and front corners, this is a wonderfully decorative piece and it is a lovely pale colour with good depth to the patination. This venerable chest of drawers is a true survivor - made out of pear wood praised for its tremendous depth of colour and patination, early pieces such as this rarely survived. Pearwood was rarer and prized over walnut, but they did not have such advanced methods to treat woodworm as exist today. Like an aging rhino, this old chest of drawers wears its battle scars, and its long dead woodworm holes, with pride.

Antique chest on chest

This antique chest on chest (or 'tallboy') was made before mahogany had began to be imported into the United Kingdom. It is made of walnut and has featherbanding round the drawers and the timber has been cut to make it symmetrical on all show wood surfaces. It has faded to a good rich honey colour over its 300 year existence and now just needs a good home where it will serve its new owners as the most elegant storage system we can think of.
