An exceptional bachelors chest of magnificent color and patination. The top quarter veneered in the finest burr walnut opening to a green velvet lining and revealing a lockable panel to an interior well reminiscent of case furniture of the 1690’s. The serpentine front with a dummy drawer to the top concealing the well above three long drawers all with original gilt brass hardware and original locks, standing on four well shaped bracket feet this chest is visually stunning and in pristine condition.
