Three Drawer Lowboy with Fine Decorative Apron
Well Patinated Oak
English c. 1750
28.25” high x 35.25” wide x 21” deep
A most unusual and decorative mid 18th century lowboy with delightfully decorated apron. The moulded boarded top with well proportioned overhang, sits above a three drawer frieze with exceptional open fret cut frieze in the rococo manner, all raised on a sophisticated cabriole leg base of sensitive lines and elegant sculpture. The overall condition is very fine, with the original shaped plate brass handles and original pad feet being rare and desirable features. There is evidence of historic use and some staining to the top, but the overall colour and surface are original and rich, there is no evidence of interference to the surface or form of this lowboy which benefits from fine proportions and well drawn lines. There are very few known solid carcass provincial examples of this type, with such comprehensively decorated open fret cut work, 'C' scroll topped legs with cabrioles to front and back, these elements together with its rarity, colour and overall integrity combine to make it a fine example.
