A George III mahogany clothes press possibly by Thomas Chippendale



SKU: 97I

The pair of solid mahogany doors enclose an interior that would have originally had five pull-out shelves, but has since been converted to hanging. The drawers are lined in oak and retain their original brasses, raised on bracket feet supported by stacking blocks - a common trait in Chippendale's work.

White chalk inscription 'Knights' underneath the base.

"In my opinion, this is a perfect example of utilitarian Georgian furniture - great timber, functional and strong. Chippendale has a way of making, what should typically be boring pieces of furniture, very pleasing."

English, c.1765
