Fine and Rare Diminutive Burr Elm Chest of Drawers
With a complex serpentine front and four oak-lined graduated long drawers, the burr veneer banded and feather-banded in walnut on shaped bracket feet.
In remarkably original condition throughout with the original gilt hardware, steel locks have a 19th century key stamped CHUBB’S PATENT, 57 ST. PAUL’S CH YD LONDON.
The shaped front is commonly regarded as of Anglo-Dutch origin, however the quality of this piece is so good that it could well have originated in a very fine London workshop.
A magnificent piece.
