The chest very heavy and well made and of small attractive proportion. The drawers on rebated runners with all original drawer linings and of correct construction for period.

Fielded panelled sides, heavy original oak boards and original mouldings. The whole is tenon and pegged throughout.
All linings and drawer linings oak and original and extremely substantial. A few old worm holes here and there, long since dead, and minor replacements. Some internal runners/slides partially and professionally restored.
