Jewellery chest in oak and burr oak with space for smaller items of jewellery below the lid and seven drawers in various depths to house larger jewellery. The overall sizes are 450mm high, 400mm wide and 350mm deep. The burr oak panels on the lid, sides and doors are book matched. The drawer fronts are veneered with two book matched pieces of veneer carefully cut so that the grain pattern follows down the drawer fronts.
The drawers are jointed with hand cut dovetails and lined in black suede. The drawer partitions can be removed to suit the owners requirements.
There is a spring loaded brass insert capped with oak which locates in the door when the lid is down so that the lock can lock the lid and drawers at the same time.
The owner wanted to personalise his gift to his wife with the letter carved message on the back rail of the lid.
A similar chest could be designed to incorporate a stand.
the guide price for this piece without a stand is £5600.00
