Stunning early - mid 1800s mahogany chest of drawers with ebony and boxwood stringing featuring architectural pillasters on lovely swept feet.
Revived original finish.  This chest has a deep rich and warm colour with the subtle patina only age can provide. The Biedermeier period originated in Vienna in the post Napoleon era of peace and prosperity. Its hallmarks were elegance and restrained architectural adornment, which this chest exhibits, although the legs trace its origins back towards western Europe or England.
Dimensions: 1100mm wide x 1200mm high x 500 mm deep.
