The Antique Georgian Chest of drawers was a solid well built handcrafted piece of antique furniture. The Georgian period saw Britain establish itself as an international power and was an expanding its empire across the globe. This meant it Britain was becoming more wealthy, so more houses was being built, meaning furniture was in higher demand. Every house, needed a chest to store clothes, so they were frequently built, usually made to order by skilled cabinet makers. This is when the country Oak Georgian Chest to the more finely inlaid Mahogany Georgian Chest was becoming more and more popular with brass swan neck handles and bracket feet. The construction was solid, the best having oak linings and hand cut dovetails joints. Very thick veneers were used on some chests along with dense Cuban Mahogany. As the Georgian chest is quite simple in design, it does fit into traditional interiors but also can look spectacular in a modern interior as a centre show piece.
