You are bidding on a lovely hand crafted walnut batchelor chests. Originally they were called batchelors chests as they were designed for single men to put their shirts and under garments in thus they are usually quite small and quite often have slides which pull out so that the gent can lay his shirt on the slide in the evening ready for the morning. This is a bigger version and you can see how the top folds out to double in size and rests on the pull out slides - making the surface twice the size. Great and practical. This could even double as a small desk if you really wanted! This piece has just come back from the restorers where it was repolished and the grain and burl of the walnut has come up a treat. It is offered in great shape, solid and stable, no wobbles and ready for home use right away. we will ship to anywhere in the world.
