A superb miniature mahogany Apprentice chest of drawers, dating from the late 19th Century. It is a charming piece with four graduating drawers with two smaller draws to the top each with original brass knobs. The chest itself is made from mahogany with a pine back and pine lined drawers.It’s beautifully made with hand-cut veneer inlaid draw fronts.
The drawers would have originally been lined with old green paper which has now gone. All the draws open smoothly. There are some general signs of age and use and minor marks and light knocks but nothing detrimental and overall it displays very well.
