English oak chest of drawers from circa 1670 with mitred mouldings, desirable proportions and graduated drawer layout. This splendid chest, which is absolutely quintessential of its period, has come through its 350 odd years with a few minor repairs. Whilst the brass escutcheons are very likely the originals it is fitted with, at least, its third set of brasses (these being of a style some 30 years later than the piece itself). However, importantly, it has the unusual distinction of remaining absolutely rot and worm free. It measures 39 inches in width, 35 inches high and has a depth of a generous 23 inches.
