A rare Welsh Yew-wood Chest on Stand. Return to category

We feel very privileged to have this beautiful piece in our shop.Made almost entirely of solid yew, apart from the drawer linings and backboards, the surface has acquired a glorious depth of patina with a colour akin to a rich toffee.

Each of the drawers is decorated with geometric line inlay so typical of the period and the carcase surround applied with narrow mouldings of D-shaped profile.The brassware is recently replaced in appropriate style.

The stand which, unusually, is entirely original apart from the rear stretcher has legs with turnings of bold profile and fine detail.

Probably from Pembrokeshire, circa 1720-40.

1720-40

148cms high x 105cms wide x 61.5cms deep

 

This piece is now sold, but if you would like us to keep you in mind the next time we have something similar, please e-mail us at info@havardandhavard.com .

Best Wishes
