The antique painted chest is a chest of drawers that is over 100 years old and has some form of paint finish. The most sought after are in the original paint finish with lots of charm and character from years of use, but you can also find good quality pieces that have been re painted and worn through using a form of chalk paint. If done correctly and worn through in the correct areas, you can find it quite difficult to tell the difference. The earlier Georgian chests are very popular with bracket feet and original brass handles but also the Victorian examples with rounded corners and turned handles can also look just as good. With all our painted pieces we try to keep them in as original condition as possible but when we re-paint hem we ensure they still have characterful features and finish them by beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing by hand. Have a look at some examples we currently have for sale below along with some sold examples.

- James Warren,
I had a very pleasant experience dealing with James Driscoll's Antiques on-line from Toronto. James was very accommodating in taking more pictures of the chest I was interested in while also answering questions in a short time. Once I decided I wanted the chest, he made it easy to send money and then arrange for delivery. The shipping company he used was amazing and their follow up service even better as we had problems with FEDEX when they delivered it to my home. The packaging was excellent as well.I am so pleased with my Georgian chest of drawers. Thank you James. It was a very pleasant experience and I would highly recommend James and his catalogue of furniture. I keep looking at the site for more...Warmly,James Warren Toronto, Canada
