George III Chippendale Period Mahogany Serpentine Chest, Circa 1770 England

Dating from one of the most famous and highly celebrated periods in English furniture history, now known as the ‘Chippendale period’. This fine George III mahogany serpentine chest is very much in the manner of Thomas Chippendale. The exaugurated serpentine shape to the face, top, and sides with moulded edge, over four long graduated, cock-beaded, oak-lined drawers, are each fitted with original gilt brass handles, locks and escutcheons. Unusually, the mahogany base moulding is japanned and rests on all four original shaped feet. It should be noted that this chest is of exceptional quality and is in fantastic original condition including, bracket feet, locks and handles. A notably similar chest resides at Paxton House, to which both Thomas Chippendale and Robert Adam supplied furniture to. See page 117 in Christopher Gilberts ‘The Life and Works of Thomas Chippendale.

Condition

Fabulous and original country house condition with richly patinated surfaces!
