Regency mahogany chest of drawers. Two small drawers over three full width drawers all with turned rosewood handles. Standing on Hepplewhite style bracket feet. Working key for two small drawers. Circa 1830-1837.
This Regency chest of drawers is lifted by its striking drawer fronts. The highly figured veneer used on the drawers has mellowed in colour so that the swirls of the grain draw the eye. A striking and practical piece of antique furniture.
George Hepplewhite (1727 - 1786) was a cabinetmaker regarded as one of the "big three" English furniture makers of the 18th century, along with Thomas Sheraton and Thomas Chippendale. He gave his name to a distinctive style of light, elegant furniture that was fashionable between about 1775 and 1800 and reproductions of his designs continued through the following centuries.
Condition Note: Historical repairs to veneer.
