I have never seen a Wellington chest with a built bookcase before, it is really quite sublime. The timber patina is to die for, on top you have Burr Walnut, everywhere else looks to be Satinwood. These are of Gillows quality, style and inspirational design. We have cleaned waxed and polished it all over, there will be normal patina marks from honest age and genuine use. The bottom two handles have been replaced.
I dont have a working key but can have one made for cost price. For those of you who don't known what a Wellington chest of drawers is basically the entire side panel of wood is a drawer cover, there is a middle lock and when locked you would have to brake the timber to access the drawers. The shelves of the bookcase are fixed however each mount has two screws, you simply unscrew, place where you wish and screw back in. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
