We have for sale a very stylish and usefully sized arts and crafts small quartered oak chest of drawers. The chest of drawers is constructed of quartered oak with two short drawers over three long drawers. The top is formed from a single piece of quartered oak and each side consists of two quartered oak panels. the drawers are furnished with oak drawer handles. The design, particularly the finely grained quartered oak handles is strongly suggestive of the piece being made in the workshop of Arthur Romney Green or (Hampshire School)by somebody trained by him somewhere during 1930s. The later seems most likely because the back of the chest carries a partial very aged label with & CO.LTD upon it. Arthur Romney Green was known to have sold his furniture directly to clients and not via retailers. The underside of the drawers carry the hand written text left drawer and right drawer respectively. The chest of drawers is 32 inches (81.2cm) long, 16.5 (42cm) deep, 31 inches (79cm) high and is in a good condition, although there is a little bit lifting of the front left corner of the top and a bit of long dead worm damage to the back. Just in case the piece has been treated.
