This is a very good quality l arge solid antique Victorian chest. It is handmade and has wonderful character, with nice dovetail joints and lovely grain to the wood.
There are strong old metal lifting handles to each end and it is waxed to a lovely finish and colour. There is trim to the top and bottom of the chest and it is very clean inside. The base of the chest is sound. The chest could be used as a blanket box at the end of a bed, or a good size coffee table as it's a useful size for storing books, toys or blankets, shoes, coats or maybe even used as a window seat.
The chest does have slight signs of use and wear but it is in excellent condition. It has a couple of small knots missing from the bottom of the trim on the base. There is a slight shrinkage gap on the lid. On the bottom trim there are very small signs of woodworm but it has long gone.
One of a kind and of quality that doesnt come along very often. Measurements at the largest points. Please check the measurements to see if it fits in your intended space. Collection from near Bedale only, North Yorkshire (10 mins from the A1). I normally courier our chests and trunks, however this weighs over 30kg and is a bulky heavy item!
