The Antique Regency Chest of drawers date between 1810 to 1830, this is when antique furniture was still built by hand, by master cabinet makers using fine quality timbers, as they were still readily available. The main timbers of choice were Mahogany and Oak along with a few select pieces in Rosewood. Sometimes solid woods were used or very thick veneers on a pine carcass. The construction would have been Dovetail joints, with cock beaded edges and quality brass fittings. They usually stood on bracket feet still, like the Earlier Georgian style but the introduction of smaller turned feet also started to appear towards the later end of the Regency period. Regency antique chests are usually elegant and simple in design but come with a beautiful charm and character and a lovely patina that cannot be reproduced, they are not only very usable but desirable to look at. Here at Antiques World we get some beautiful examples for sale, have a look below at a few of the many antiques we have on offer.
