British Colonial Rosewood Chest of DrawersLate 19th century
An antique British colonial rosewood chest of drawers with a rectangular moulded top with egg and dart carving on the edge. The upper section has two short drawers above one long drawer, the lower section has two long drawers. All of the drawers are flush fitting with the original recessed brass handles. The piece rests on four bun feet.
The chest of drawers is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made off has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
