Edwardian Period Six Drawer Pine Chest, Original Iron Pulls, England c.1910

An Edwardian period double wide pine chest of drawers from England c.1910. This is an unusual chest of drawers because of the total of six drawers with three drawers placed side by side. The top of the chest has a handsome moulded edge that extends slightly wider and deeper than the body of the chest. By making the top this dimension the cabinet maker demonstrated his knowledge of symmetry as the top provides visual weight to the base with its array of bracket feet that elevate the chest above the floor and shows its Georgian influence. The six drawers are separated by vertical pieces of equally sized pine timber and each drawer has a shaped edge known as a "chamfered" edge that slopes from the drawer front to the sides, top and bottom of each drawer. Please note that the top drawer on each side is the smallest then the middle drawer is larger with the lowest drawer being the largest. This change in scale produces a cascade effect visually that is quite pleasing. All six of the drawers retain their original metal hardware with a drop pull handle that makes opening and closing each drawer a smooth process. This handsome chest offers a wonderful amount of storage in a very attractive timber.
