In very original condition, the sandy olive coloured Georgian painted flight or bank of eighteen drawers, each with the original two-pin handles and remnants of hand-written workshop labels, having four rows of four smaller drawers over two longer drawers, the fronts remaining untouched, with the top now mainly worn of paint, the whole standing on bracket feet and surviving from the first quarter of the nineteenth century.

In beautifully untouched condition the painted pine drawer fronts are now evocatively chipped and worn, with a well-established patina; the handles are all original and each drawer moves freely. The top has been mainly worn of paint, whilst there is a scraped line of damage to one flank.

Made by a Georgian craftsmen for workshop use, this is a versatile and sought after period piece of furniture. It is probable that this particular example was used for haberdashery or in a general shop counter environment. It is also possible it was for apothecary or artists pigment use.

Of very desirable size, this is a stunning original piece of Georgian painted furniture.
