Large Green Painted Chest of Drawers Shop Counter

  • £375.00

This is a useful large antique chest of drawers dating to the end of the 19th century.

It is well made from mahogany and mixed woods and is heavy, solid and quite large. I imagine it began its life as part of a larger piece of furniture, possibly as the base of a large housekeeping cupboard or built in linen press.

The chest is fitted with two huge drawers which are finished with turned mahogany handles. The drawer interiors are in quite clean condition and the drawers run fairly well.

The chest is finished at the front with a deep base plinth and the top of the chest has a small back rail.

I have hand painted the exterior in my own mix of water based botanical green paint before distressing the finish well and adding dark wax for a fantastically rustic 'boatyard' look.

The paintwork is solid colour and the finish is fairly smooth and matt.


The chest is in solid structural condition with some many marks and knocks here and there.

Repairs have been made as necessary, nothing that is too obvious.

Generally it is quite rustic but perfectly serviceable.
