English 19th Century Painted Faux Bamboo Chest
Dimensions: 41″H x 36 5/8″W x 18″D
An excellent five drawer English chest of drawers from the 19th century. The chest is trimmed in a faux bamboo, an element of Asian influence that is sometimes found in antique English pieces. The chest has been painted in a beautiful taupe with white trim bands on the drawer fronts. The top two drawers are smaller, and each is outfitted with a turned wood knob. The bottom three drawers are gradually larger and each has two turned wood knobs. The chest is lifted by four styled, turned feet. The paint has acquired an aged patina that gives this charming antique even more character. c.1840.
