HANDSOME 1897 MAHOGANY SCOTTISH CHEST

















How do we know it was made in 1897?
Because its written on a drawer base!

Actually it is signed and dated
by the maker although not 100%
sure what the surname is.
It looks like
Ernest Houlder
9th January 1897.

This sort of chest of drawers with
high legs and shaped apron to the
front are generally referred to as
Scottish chests but I'm sure not all
of these chests were necessarily
made in Scotland.

This is a lovely mahogany example
with glorious quality matched
flame mahogany fronts to the
drawers and Mother of Pearl
buttons to the original knobs.

It has the normals usage marks
as you would expect from a
120 year old chest of drawers.
The only real fault to report
is 3 small sections on the left
corners of three of the drawers
have come off and have been
glued back on.
It is not glaringly obvious but
needs to be mentioned for accuracy
of description.
We have also taken this minor defect
into account when we priced it.
Other than this it is simply a
beautiful and useful piece of
furniture and most importantly
the drawers that slide in and out
like a dream!

SORRY, I'VE SOLD!
