Miniature William and Mary Diminutive Olive Oyster Chest, C.1688-1702

From the reign of King William & Queen Mary (1688-1702), England.

The finely holly-banded and cross-grain moulded top is beautifully veneered in roundels of hand-cut olive oysters and lined in boxwood stringing in a geometric form. Over three oyster veneered drawers, each bearing original hardware and locks. The sides are veneered in figured olive and centered with a roundel of boxwood inlay.

It should be noted that Miniature or ‘toy’ chests from 17th century England are extremely rare.

Personal comments: This important miniature olive oyster ‘toy’ chest is quite simply a masterpiece and incorporates all of the features associated with the period 1680-1700.

Condition

Good. Wear consistent with age and use. The colour and patination of this piece is superb. Handles, escutcheons and locks are believed to be original, the bun feet are historic later replacements.
