To bring this chest up-to-date it has been sanded, stained, painted and covered in wax to enhance the tiger oak grain. Sections of the paint are smooth or impasto (thick textured surface).


The chest is in excellent vintage condition; the drawers open smoothly and the chest stands solid.


Please remember that this is a vintage piece, therefore it will show signs of character and slight wear unless otherwise specified. That being said we do refurbish all of our pieces to a good standard.
