Antique Bachelor's Chest

Regular price R 4,450.00 R 0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

A very old chest of three drawers with a writing slide. This would have been the perfect chest of clothing drawers for a young single man in the late 1900's, like a police constable, a clerk at the bank, or a soldier, with a writing slide to transform the chest into a rudimentary desk for writing letters by candle light to a "bonny over the ocean".

The wood seems to be a local hardwood used in a lot of furniture around the time - wild oleander, a teak-like African wood. The brass cup handles are original.

Condition: Very good. Sanded and sealed.

Dimensions: 87 x 53 x 86 cm (h)
