This handsome miniature antique Burl Veneer Chest radiates the warmth and natural beauty of exotic wood with the mellow tones that come with the passage of time. A perfect little treasure chest for your treasures.
A beautiful piece with four drawers, the top, back, sides, and long front drawers are all covered with burl veneer panels circumscribed by string inlay. The pulls are bronze. All four legs are fancifully out-curved, and the top two drawer fronts are shaped with their profile carried around the entire chest, a lovely detail.
CONDITION is grand with the expected dings, wear, and cracking of the veneer that is always present on old veneer pieces... but no losses that are just as common. The drawers have been lined with deep red felt somewhere along the way, and it has some minor spots. Measures 16 1/2" long including the feet x 7 1/2" deep x 11" tall. The top of the chest measures 14 3/8" x 7 1/2".
This would be a fabulous jewel box, can't you just imagine this little dresser sitting on your big one? Or perhaps you have a bebe you'd like to share it with. Wherever it lands it will be just perfect. Enjoy!
