Regency Period Painted Pine Bank of 18 Drawers

DOE AND HOPE
In very original condition, the sandy olive coloured Georgian painted flight or bank of eighteen drawers, each with the original two-pin handles and remnants of hand-written workshop labels, having four rows of four smaller drawers over two longer drawers, the fronts remaining untouched, with the top now mainly worn of paint, the whole standing on bracket feet and surviving from the first quarter of the nineteenth century.

In beautifully untouched condition the painted pine drawer fronts are now evocatively chipped and worn, with a well-established patina; the handles are all original and each drawer moves freely. The top has been mainly worn of paint, whilst there is a scraped line of damage to one flank.

Made by a Georgian craftsmen for workshop use, this is a versatile and sought after period piece of furniture. It is probable that this particular example was used for haberdashery or in a general shop counter environment. It is also possible it was for apothecary or artists pigment use.

Of very desirable size, this is a stunning original piece of Georgian painted furniture.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
