Circa 1860, early Victorian mahogany Wellington chest/desk. The piece has a rectangular top with a flat fore edge and half round moulding beneath it. The large drawer on the top opens to reveal a writing slope, which is hinged and can be tilted up. Behind this are various pigeon holes and a pen slide. The slide can be accessed via the side of the drawer. Beneath this, set back are four further drawers all with original locks and handles. On both sides are stylish turned and tapering columns, with ring turning at the top and base. All standing on an enclosed plinth. The chest has great colour and patination, and is very stylish. It is ash lined, indicating it could be Scottish.
