George I Burr Walnut Bachelor’s Chest

England

circa 1725

The bachelor chest has a walnut and feather banded fold-over top. The rectangular top with fine figured veneers and feather and cross banding opens to reveal a mirror image arrangement of veneers to the inside. The top when open is supported by retractable lopers, with four long graduated drawers below. These are fitted with the original brass shaped plate handles and lock escutcheons and have quadrant beaded edges. The chest is supported on its original shaped bracket feet. It is in lovely condition with excellent rich colour and patina throughout.
