A solid rare solid ashwood chest of 4 drawers with polished brass handles and ornamental brass escutcheons. Nicely restored and french polished finish in a gorgeous blone colour that would brighten up any interior. The whole is raised on four elegant turned feet.
It is most unusual to see Ashwood used in furniture and has a very pleasant grain to it. it is also a very heavy and dense timber with a grain thats is similar to elm and is usually only ever used as veneer.
Swedish second half the 19th century
