Brasses are old replacements in the manner of the original. Made of extremely fine Cuban mahogany with a fine hand waxed finish. Superb color overall, and a grain that exhibits chatoyant. All original elements including top, drawers, feet and blocking structure, and backboards. Has dust covers between the drawers and, since it is solid and dense Cuban mahogany, the chest is quite heavy. The chest is in very good condition. The top has small areas of wear to the finish and some edge abrasion. The bracket base has minor restoration. Measures 35.5"wide X 34"high X 20.5"deep.
