I would suggest that this chest of drawers has never had anything done to it since the date of manufacture way back in 1760. So in the trade we would say ‘it’s in original untouched condition‘. Having all the original swan neck brass handles, most of the original bracket feet, it has a good original colour and all the keyhole escutcheons are original.

What needs doing... The drawers linings and draw runners all need resetting and repairing. Quite a lot of cock beading and side mouldings are missing. The foot and some of the moulding on the back right hand side is missing. It all needs washing off and waxing up.

Why did you buy this chest Martin I hear you say? Well the reason is when all this work is done and one has invested the time and money, it will be a very good example of an 18th Century Chippendale period mahogany chest of drawers. And it is of a size that can be used on the ground floor, in a hall way, drawing room or in a bedroom.

If you would like to take on the challenge yourself the chest can be purchased in its present condition for £345 plus VAT, or get in touch and we can give you a price to do the work in our workshop in Stafford.

In 1978 Martin Taylor started his antiques company specialising in furniture from the eighteenth century to the 1930’s. His particular love was Victorian and Edwardian furniture. As time went by he found that more and more people bought his furniture for hotels, restaurants and pubs as centrepieces or bought sets of reclaimed chairs for dining.

Since 2008 Taylor's Classics has brought together a unique collection of chairs, tables, stools and benches that represent the best in British furniture over the past 250 years from Chippendale to Arts and Crafts. Our new reproduction furniture has been manufactured especially for the contract and hospitality markets.

All this is run alongside selling our original antique and vintage pieces from our 40,000 square foot warehouse, showrooms, factory and offices in Stafford.
