English Mahogany Barley Twist Chest of Drawers Cabinet
This cabinet is a most interesting piece. The intricate carving is impeccable but my favorite is the way that the barley twist is seperate and complete from the chest of drawers itself. All five drawers are dovetail constructed! Absolutely beautiful!!! It is made of solid mahogany and has a warm, hand rubbed fruitwood finish.
The carving on this piece was completely done by hand and must have required a master carpenter. The detail and skill it must have taken is truly incredible. The pictures do not do this piece justice. It is a rare find, so don't miss out!
Measures: 43" T x 37" W x 21" D
