George II Burr/Burl Walnut Caddy Topped Chest, circa 1730-1740

An important George II burr walnut caddy topped chest, circa 1730-1740. With firm attribution to Giles Grendey.

The ‘caddy’ moulded quarter veneered and feather-banded burr walnut top sits above a cock-beaded brushing slide, over four long graduating drawers, each cross banded, feather-banded and book-matched in choice cuts of burr walnut veneer. The chest is raised on original bracket feet and leather-wrapped brass castors. Similarly, the sides are book-matched in choice cuts of figured walnut.

It should be noted that chests such as this are extremely rare and rarer still to retain all brass furniture, locks, feet and not forgetting well patinated original surfaces.

Giles Grendey was born at Wooton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire in 1693. His workshop was at Aylesbury House, St. John’s Square, Clerkenwell, London and is most famously known to have supplied an order to the duke of Infantado for his castle of Lazcano in Spain.

Good. Wear consistent with age and use. In original condition including all brass furniture, locks and bracket feet.
