Antique English Victorian Wellington Chest of Drawers Campaign Carved Oak

$ 2,750.00

Antique English Victorian Wellington Chest of Drawers Campaign Carved Oak.

Direct from England, a stunning antique English “Wellington Chest”, one of the first we have found in quite some time, and by far the most ornately carved one!!

The hand carvings here are exquisite and completely cover the cabinet and all six drawer fronts, both sides and the cabinet top as well…even the lower apron and the fluted feet are carved!!

This style cabinet is often called a “Wellington chest”, after the first Duke of Wellington, a leading British military figure of the 19th century.  These chests are typically tall, narrow, and feature a locking right front “flap” that covers the edges of the drawers and secures them locked and safe, even during military travel, thus also considered as “campaign furniture!”

Quality throughout with dovetailed drawers; well built by craftsmen of the period, circa1880.

ALL THE FEATURES we look for in our antiques 1) QUALITY… in how it was originally made; 2) CONDITION… in which it has survived the years; 3) RARITY…in how few were originally made; 4) DEMAND…in today’s market chests are one of the most sought-after antique furniture pieces
