An 18th century George III period mahogany Serpentine Chest, having well figured and cross banded top above four long drawers with original brass handles.
Flanked by fluted canted corners raised on elegant original splayed feet with attractive shaped apron.
A popular design form for chest of drawers throughout the second half of the 18th century and beyond the serpentine form can be found in many different variations and qualities.
This particular example is of exceptional quality throughout and retains a good colour and patina.
It has a real elegance which is aided by the original brass handles and bold splay feet with shaped apron which have remarkably all survived intact despite 250 years or so of usage.
The perfect size for use in a both upstairs and downstairs rooms around the house and as fit for
purpose as the day it was made this would be a great, elegant addition to absolutely any home.
