A George I Burr Walnut Cabinet on Chest
England, circa 1715

A magnificent George I period burr walnut and walnut cabinet on chest of exceptional quality. The walnut throughout is of the most wonderful colour and patina. The lower section standing on bracket feet has two short drawers and three long drawers each herringbone inlaid, oak lined and with the most unusual original brass handles. The upper section with a cornice and two panelled doors of magnificent colour similarly inlaid with herringbone; the doors opening to reveal a series of drawers around a central cupboard, each drawer magnificently veneered in superb walnut; the central cupboard door opening once more to reveal a series of sunken drawers behind which is a secret compartment.

What we like: an outstanding piece of early Georgian walnut furniture, the perfect colour and with very rare original brassware.
