The provincially made Victorian pine carcass showing the wonderful original electric powder blue paint, worn thoroughly and consistently with age, with the rustic two plank top over a pair of frieze drawers with original knob handles, the whole raised on tapering block legs and surviving from nineteenth century England.
The carcass has a wonderful patina to its paint, with a host of character and craquelure commensurate with its age and heavy use. The knob handles are original and there have been no additions to the piece since its creation. There are some gaps to the top between the planks, with one knob handle having some part loss as photographed. and wear and tear that one would expect to see. Overall it could be used as is and enjoyed as a beautiful decorative piece.
