A Compact Victorian Antique Country Pine Chest of Drawers


Origin: English
Period: Mid Nineteenth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1870
Width: 24.5 inches
Height: 31.25 inches
Depth: 23 inches

Having three graduated drawers, the carcass with canted corners and good panelling to one side, standing on a plinth base.

The condition is unquestionably rustic, wonderfully worn, with an abundance of character and a yawning evocative patina. The handles are later but probably still late Victorian and the interiors to the draws, have at some stage, been painted in a pleasing dark slated grey.

This chest is a versatile and sought after piece of country furniture, largely because of its size, meaning it could be placed in almost any room in the home. If you like your furniture to tell a story, and are searching for extra storage, then look no further.
