This antique French walnut chest is a wonderful example of the transition between trunk-style chests and chests of drawers. The top "drawer" is a false drawer front and the top is hinged, and when lifted, the top interior is accessible much like a traditional trunk. The two bottom drawers function as typical drawers. There are brass handles and escutcheons that decorate the font along with an escutcheon at the top. The interior hinge automatically props up the weight of the lid and has a simple release to close the lid. Please see all images for details.
Measures: 48" W x 23.5" D x 33" H. Surface wear and wormholes are present. There is also a missing piece in the front decoration on the top of the right "column" style leg (shown). Some discoloration is also present inside the piece.
