Regency bow front chest

Item no. 58

Beautifully figured mahogany, Regency period, bow front chest, circa 1810. Comprising three long and two short drawers, functioning original brass locks and alternately ebonised reed-turned feet. Unconventionally, but perhaps due to the preference for rosewood during this period, the drawer sides are rosewood. The squared corners of the main cabinet with ebony stringing and cross-banding, rather than reeded moulding, suggest an era circa 1800, however, the turned, reeded feet are more akin to Regency. The overall impression is of a transitional piece. Although it had turned wooden knobs when found, marks suggested original round metal handles and have been replaced by this restorer accordingly. There has been extensive rebuilding of drawers to ensure smooth functioning, and refinishing was required, while retaining as much faded patina as possible. A very elegant piece.

Height 97.5cm; depth 56cm; width 106cm

Price: $ 2,400
