Antique Danish house maidens chest of drawers made of pine. Dating from 1850s
Unique antique solid pine chest of drawers where all the drawers lock and fitted with ringlet handles.
This stylish pine chest of drawers was made for a young girl for her to pack her clothes and belongings into before she traveled to take up her position as the maid in a household in the city or on a farm in the countryside.
The drawers can all be locked as this was so the chest of drawers could be sent in advance of the girl to the location where she would be working.
That is why the address tags are found on the back. Sadly we can not work out the destination as there are only partial labels left of where the girl would be working.
Condition: Superb with stunning patina and fully restored with all the drawers running smoothly. The pine has oiled finish which leaves it smooth and very soft to touch. All drawers lock and the key is available.
