What a lovely French chest of drawers these are! There is something about the French style of furniture that is just so stunning and classic, with enough detail to add character without being too 'busy'.
This chest has some beautiful detail, I love the gentle curve of the top of this piece, it's so pretty. I also love the bottom of the chest which is beautifully curved and has a pretty carved piece in the centre which has been emphasised with the waxes. There are three good sized drawers, each with nice detail on the fronts and metal drop handles. The short cabriole feet have the archetypal French 'escargot' feet adding lovely characterful to the piece.
This wonderful piece has been hand painted in the lovely Autentico colour 'Silver' which is a very lovely silver/grey shade. The chest has then been waxed using coloured waxes adding subtle ageing and character.
This stunning Victorian chest is so lovely, and large too!
The chest has two smaller drawers over three larger ones, each one slightly increasing in size as they go down the chest. Each of the drawers has a carved wooden knob and escutcheon. The chest has a gently curved front and sits on short double bun feet.
The colour of the chest is so lovely, its a beautiful shade of blue from Autentico called 'Scandinavian Blue' and has been finished with a veil of white wax which gives such a fabulous finish as it adheres to the chalky bits within the paint. The inside of the drawers have been painted too.
This is a large chest so please check the measurements carfeully.
