Handsome Victorian Country House Scale Chest of Drawers
Particularly handsomely large in scale and by quality makers S & H Jewell 29,30 & 31 Little Queen St, Holborn, London – stamped inside of the left hand top drawer.
S & H Jewell were fine cabinet makers established in 1830 and produced for the quality end of the market and sold several pieces to Standen House, the arts and crafts home in East Grinstead.
This chest from the Victorian period survives in that lovely faded wilted condition with a really good look and stance. The large 6 drawers sit on its bold bracket plinth. We are fortunate that the chest has enjoyed a life without any major work or repolishing, so we have genuine colour and condition. The top and all the drawers are inlaid with the drawers having the original swan neck handles still attached.
The drawers sit firm and are fitting well with the original handles. We do have use marks to the top and sides. One of the front bracket feet has enjoyed an old repair but it sits well and is old. The chest smells fine and is ready to place.
Looking for a country house sized chest, then this one is rather splendid and by a fine maker…
