A GEORGE III MAHOGANY CHEST OF DRAWERS A charming mid 18th century Chippendale period straight fronted chest of drawers. The cross-banded top with moulded edge above brushing slide and four graduated drawers unusually having aromatic cedar lining and having original elaborate swan-neck handles throughout with spiral twist column insert; on moulded plinth terminating in ogee bracket feet.
