Portuguese chest serpentine front in carved mahogany. Bow waved frontage with four drawers, relieved gold metal handles and escutcheons around the key holes. The style is described as D. Jose from Portugal. The colouring is fantastic and the clawed feet and scroll features on the edges are eye catching.
This is a bit of a wow piece with the quality of the detail quite exceptional – look at the flow and contour of the drawer opposite and the feet are another interesting facet with their protruding claws and the bead work at the bottom are a darker colour.
Dimensions: 1.15m long x 84cm tall
