The drawer fronts have a simple hollow moulded edge and the drawers are constructed from solid oak throughout. The chest is fitted with pierced brass handles and escutcheons. This chest, at s's life, has been cut into two sections (probably for ease of access up a staircase). The two sections of the chest locate on large dowells, making it sturdy when complete. This chest offers great storage and the fact that it can been moved in two sections makes it flexible for positioning. Good overall condition, with odd blemishes commensurate with age.
