Lot 0008 Details

The word, “miniature,” may be debatable, as this handsome piece has quite a presence. Small, beautifully finished chests like this one have long been popular in the best British homes.; The wood used for the main part of this chest is probably sycamore, which is still used for high-end furniture as well as musical instruments. It has a beautiful, buttery-smooth luster that is similar to maple.; Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of this small chest is its top, which is fascinatingly inlaid with a lozenge-shaped design of various exotic woods, including palm wood. Each drawer has been given a distinctive ebonized stringing and has dovetail construction. The ebonized knobs and the feet are turned. This chest dates to around 1880.; The condition is superb. I have had it professionally polished.; It measures about 15-1/2 inches wide, 10-1/2 inches deep and 15-3/4 inches high.
