This is a superb quality pair of antique Victorian mahogany bedside chests, circa 1860, in excellent condition. They are pedestals from a Victorian dressing table, which have been adapted into bedside chests some time ago. Each bedside chest boasts elegant thumb moulded round cornered tops; this design is also reflected in the plinths. The bedsides each have three graduated working drawers, featuring figured mahogany fonts, with the two bottom drawers being a double drawer. The drawers are constructed with fine hand-dovetailed joints, mahogany drawer linings and the original mahogany knobs. The drawer linings even boast quarter beading to the frames; this is a true sign of quality. The drawers retain their original working brass lever locks (with working key). The bedsides stand on their original top quality rounded mahogany plinths. The chests are constructed of top quality mahogany timber imported from the colonies during the Victorian period. The quality is reflected in the weight of these bedsides; they are heavy to lift!
The bedsides feature a rich nut-brown mahogany colour. They have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
