18th Century Walnut Continental Chest of Drawers

A fine 18th century walnut chest of drawers. Serpentine front and sides. This piece has obvious repairs but this gives the piece character and an example of how people used pieces and cared for them too. Made of solid wood, carved feet and apron. Not the original hardware but nice quality brass applied. The sides are made of solid walnut curved to shaped and you can see the shrinkage through the years. The side aprons carved to compliment front. Just a charming chest of drawers. C. 1790-1800.

18th Century Painted Commode From Europe

A posh Continental painted commode from the late 18th century, having three drawers (each with key and functional locks) which are presented with stencil patterns and painted countrysides. Each scene depicting people in a local activity. On either side of the drawers are half round and turned columns. The piece rest upon bun feet. The top is also stenciled with a bellflower boarder surrounding a garden scene and ruins with man and lady. This has had a refresh of paint but the chest is 18th century.
