circa: 1890 width: 47 height: 46 length: 22 This beautiful antique mahogany bow front chest of drawer was hand-crafted in Victorian England around 1890. The mahogany displays a fine, rich grain and lustrous complexion, which the columnar twist carvings and round wooden knobs emphasize quite wonderfully. Because this antique bow front chest is over a century old, it has had time to develop a lovely patina, which enriches the distinct grain and complexion of the mahogany, which should only continue to grow more beautiful with time. The bow front design, which was a favoured shape of Victorian craftsmen, looks wonderful, as well. This chest was built with a classic two-over-three drawer design, which offers plenty of storage space; each drawer features hand-cut dovetailed joints. Sturdy turned feet provide strong support. This bow front chest has sustained some minor surface wear consistent with age, particularly on the sides and top, and the drawers are missing some moulding in places. The perfect combination of antique charm and modern functionality, this Victorian mahogany bow front chest of drawers would make a fantastic addition to any home!
