ANTIQUE PAINTED MAHOGANY DRAWERS


click the image above to enlarge

A very attractive, painted antique chest of drawers. The chest has been crafted from solid mahogany and hand painted in 'Gris Perle', light grey, from Technic paints of France. The chest is superbly made and uses hand cut dovetail joints on the drawers. The beautiful, decorative brass drawer handles are antique, but not original to the chest. The original locks and escutcheons are intact, but there isn't a key.

Prior to painting the original dark varnish has been removed, which provides superior paint adhesion. Removing the dark varnish also reveals the real rusty orange colour of the mahogany. Therefore the top of the chest has been left unpainted, but waxed, to show the real beauty of the wood. The paintwork has also been waxed with clear bees' wax.

This is a very solid, heavy and practical antique chest of drawers. It does have marks, scratches and marks which reflect its age. The bun feet are not original to the chest.

99cm wide, 77cm high, 48.5cm deep.
