Description & Technical information

The chest has remained in virtually untouched condition, retaining the original ornate brass handles and all the original fitments in the top drawer, including four lidded boxes, four lidded compartments, four lidded glass bottles, a pin cushion, a removable inkwell tray with inkwells, various open compartments and a toilet mirror with the original glass.
Note: The brushing slide above the fitted top drawer is lined with old green baize which is probably a 19th century replacement.
