A circa 1780 English mahogany chest with four graduated dovetailed beaded drawers and writing slide. Secondary wood is pine. Exceptionally desirable small size and with a fine polished finish. Other impressive features are the single board top with a striking grain that seems to dance as you walk around looking at it. Photos are shown in a mix of sun and shade. All locks and escutcheons present and original; handles very old, possibly original. Overall very good condition. Measures 31.5”w x 32.5”h x 17.8”d.
