George III & Later Mahogany Commode Chest of 4 Graduated Drawers
A fine Georgian mahogany commode, converted early in the 19thC, as was common, to a chest of drawers, with richly-grained top, having beautifully moulded edges to front & sides, over four graduated drawers with period brass swan neck drop-handles and oval plates, the mahogany drawer fronts beaded in a checkered pattern in satinwood & ebony, all on a moulded plinth with bracket feet, this lovely, modestly-proportioned chest will delight in the most elegant of period-furnished homes, fully-deserving of the admiring attention it will undoubtedly attract.
Width of Top 71.25cm x Depth 45.25cm (28" x c17.75")
Width of Base 72cm x Depth 45cm (28.25" x 17.75")
Height 69.25cm (27.25")
This is an antique piece, originating in the late 18thC, so you may expect the mature character & patina that only develops with great age, including an old repair to the side moulding & top on the left hand side but, otherwise, it's in very good, clean & sound condition and ready to use in your home.
NB: There is old woodworm in the underside and, to a lesser extent, in the rear but it is no longer active. As a precaution, I always treat signs of worm when I acquire such pieces and I will treat it once again before dispatch, in order that you may be entirely reassured.
