Lot 49
A Georgian mahogany chest with crossbanded top, fitted 2 short and 3 long drawers with brass swan neck drop handles, raised on bracket feet 35" ILLUSTRATED SOLD £480

As with many chests of this age, this does have replacement handles but they are at least of the period. Overall, this chest is in very good order with the only obvious faults being the handles, a small gauge out of the wood above the escutcheon on the bottom drawer and a veneer repair on the carcass above the lock on the bottom drawer.
