The Antique Edwardian Chest of Drawers is from the reign of King Edward VII’s in Britain from 1901 to 1911. Chests from this period were made with the help of machines, with machine cut dovetails but the quality of timbers used were still superb, with Solid Mahogany, Satinwood and Walnut being used. Earlier influences were used in their decoration, from the Georgian Chippendale Ogee bracket feet to fine Hepplewhite inlay along with the newly formed Arts and Crafts traditional handmade chests. They would usually be highly french polished by skilled craftsmen, and produced by some of the best and most well known cabinet makers like Maple and Co along with Waring and Gillows. Some of the earlier Georgian and Victorian chests, were recycled by by the Edwardian cabinet maker, by being adapted to be made smaller, so they could fit into the new smaller homes. These lovely smaller chests are actually really nice quality as they have the earlier solid timbers and quality brass handles. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
