Antique Tabletop Collectors Drawers
A lovely tabletop pine chest of six drawers with the original stained finish and turned knobs, dating from the early 20th Century. It is a good quality piece and is solidly made with hand cut dovetail joints on all the drawers. This particular chest was once used to store a collection of eggs in and each drawer is graduated in size and some have their original dividers. There are the remains of some paper labels on the divisions and a few bird names can be made out including 'Heron', 'Gannet', and 'Barn Owl'. The wooden dividers can be easily removed or modified to make the chest useable for storing a variety of things.
It is in good original condition and displays very nicely. It has picked up a few minor knocks and scuffs over the years and there are a few marks and stains but nothing detrimental. Some dividers are missing and the top drawer is empty but all of the drawers open and close smoothly and are generally clean and tidy inside.
