Carved Mahogany Diminutive Chest With Inlaid Parquetry
I love beautiful boxes and chests because they can accent a room or dresser so easily. This lovely carved mahogany diminutive chest is a great example. I especially like small chests like this given to a loved one with perhaps a special item, such as a photograph, in the drawer.
This has a rectangular top over a single drawer with very nice inlaid parquetry decoration, raised on square legs.
Size: The height is 6 3/4". Width of the lid 9 1/2"; Depth 6 1/2". The Drawer measures as follows: approximately 6" across; 4 1/2" deep; 2 3/4" at the sides, back of drawer 1 3/4".
Condition: There is a strange pattern on one corner of the chest which I have photographed in a close-up. It is not as noticeable "in person." The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
Circa: We are listing this as Vintage, with an age dating from the early 1900s, but it may be a bit older.
