We are pleased to be offering today this wonderful seven drawer olive ash burl tall chest, which is Biedermeier, and comes out of Denmark via Germany. Dating from the 1850s, we just got in a few pieces of Biedermeier on this last container and we are so pleased with the variety. We got in seven drawer chests, wardrobes, abbantants and even bar cabinets, commodes and tall chests! As the saying goes, “variety is the spice of life.” This particular item has black highlights or ebony highlights olive ash burl with brown mahogany sides seven drawer chests. They theory goes is that they had seven drawers for each day of the week. Since Sunday was dress up day, it is the largest drawer. There was never any hardware as the keys were used to open the drawers. This chest does not have a key, but it has all the locks and key hole escutcheons. We do not guarantee the locks to work as they are always finicky and need to be oiled and adjusted to work properly. The drawers are all hand cut dove tail and pine secondary wood. The sides are a 45 degree angle and ebonized highlight with an olive ash match panel going the entire length. They come down into a 45 degree angle molding on the top and the base. The base has bun feet in the front and block feet in the back. The top has the typical step back cove molding cover. The overall condition is good with minor flaws here and there. There is some paint loss on the black that can be touched up if you desire and a couple of cracks on the sides where it doesn’t matter, but we wanted to mention it. Overall it is an outstanding tall chest by Biedermeier. The overall size is 38 inches wide, 19 inches deep and approximately 66 inches high.
