Without question one of the finest examples in Australia. There are no pre-existing repairs or fillings to the external surfaces. All original veneer and drawer cock-beading intact and in excellent condition (There is a small amount of bubbling to the veneer on the bottom drawer and also a 5 cent piece size section to the very bottom right side of the chest).. All seven drawers function nicely and sit straight and flush. Cosmetically outstanding with no significant dents or marks to the external surfaces. Internal jewellery safe to rear of top drawer (last image). The original back-boarding is in perfect condition also.
Note: All internal drawer locks have been removed with only the internal safe lock remaining (no key included). For an additional $150 all drawers can be fitted with new, reproduction Victorian brass til locks (two keys included). Visit our Facebook page to find more images of this chest.
