Circa 1920, George II style burr walnut block front lowboy. The top with burr walnut veneers and crossbanded edge on the front and sides, over a scribe moulding on the fore edge. Beneath the top are two serpentine drawers with crossbanding and burr walnut panels in the centre. The back plates of the handles are pressed brass in the form of a sun burst or petal, and a simple stylised foliate cast flower handle hangs down from it. The fore edge of the lowboy is canted and veneered in walnut. Beneath the bottom drawer is a deep shaped apron, and the whole piece stands on four elegant carved cabriole legs, with scrolling quarter blocks which continue onto the knees and terminating on simple pad feet.
