This a small table top chest of drawers which dates to the early 20th century.
This small chest is a useful and decorative piece which has been hand made from mixed woods and old Jamaican cigar boxes, it is quite primitive and naively made, a scratch built piece.

It is an unusual piece for a desk top, perfect for stowing away small items and collectibles, perhaps for use in a workshop for screws, nails and bits and bobs.
The chest has twelve small drawers which are finished with turned wooden handles, these are set into a red painted carcass.
Each drawer base is stamped.

The chest measures
30.5cms high x 34.25cms wide x 22.5cms deep
drawers measure 11.5cms wide x 20cms deep, top drawers are 3cms high, bottom drawers are 4cms high

It is quite rustic and there are many marks of age and use, there is a small area of veneer missing on one side, please see all of the photos to get an idea of its general condition.

Delivery to mainland U.K. is £15.00

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
