The collaboration of Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect. We are very fortunate that we can call on the assistance of skilful enthusiastic craftsmen whom we can trust to give us sound advice and deliver a first class service. Without these guys our business would be very difficult, less stimulating and more importantly less enjoyable. We choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal, whether it be an 18th century bank of drawers or a pair of 1970s gilded light fittings.

Description

This chest of drawers C1880 is presented in particularly good, untouched condition and an uncommon find being part of a set which we have.

As mentioned it's getting more difficult to find these chests - most having been stripped, modified or left to die in sheds or barns. This one has many lovely attributes of the Aesthetic Movement era - the two-tone scumble grained finish, the pleasingly shaped brass handles and painted fronts to the drawers and top. It's a classic combination of 3 lower graduated drawers topped with a pair of short ones sitting on a square plinth.

We are fortunate to have a beautiful matching dressing stand, two small chairs and a small bedside cabinet all decorated in a similar manner.

Workshop report - the painted and scumble glaze finish to the pine chest is about right. All of the original unpolished and nicely tarnished brass handles are in situ. The chest is firm with no wobbles or repairs. We have vacuumed the drawers - the top left drawer having its original little key. It’s been a dust over to ensure its ready to place. Expect sensible wear to the carcass.

A delightful English chest of drawers C1880.
