Small Biedermeier Marble Top Chest of Drawers c.1830.

Unusually small early 19th.c. biedermeier marble top chest of drawers c.1830. Just 34″ wide, original grey marble top with rounded edge over a shallow top drawer with shaped front, plus three deeper drawers set within a moulded border. Typical of the biedermeier style, any applied decoration, handles etc is eschewed in favour of natural grain of the timbers used. In this case superbly figured flame mahogany veneers which are laid in a symmetrical repeating pattern across the front with the original inlaid brass keyhole escutcheons being the only interruption to the pattern. Highly figured mahogany veneers are also used on the sides. Original brass locks and large key. Oak drawer linings and back panel. Minor damage to the veneers, generally excellent condition and particularly good colour. Cleaned and waxed in our workshops.
