Drawer arrangement is a large, full pinwheel carved square central drawer flanked by two pairs of short drawers above three graduated long drawers. Large applied fluted quarter columns. A molded base of bold ogee feet with spurs in the Colchester manner. Cherry wood with secondary woods pine and oak corner blocks at the feet. Condition: Chest in original condition retaining old mahoganized finish under a mid-19th century dry varnish surface. Brasses are replaced. Minor old repairs as expected. H 45". W (case) 36-1/2".
