Vintage four drawer bow fronted miniature chest of drawers. Restoration project.

Constructed from a hardwood (possibly mahogany). The drawer fronts have a lovely bowed shape, and the side panels have curved profiles. 

Each drawer originally had two small, turned knobs but sadly some are missing and one is damaged.
Each side panel has a piece of wood missing (please see photos), I’m not sure how easy these would be to replace. The top of the chest has two drill holes near the back. 

The photos show the wood in natural sunlight. The chest looks darker in the flesh, with less patternation to the wood. But in bright light, the lovely patina of the wood really shines through. 

Once a very high quality piece of miniature furniture. Still looks beautiful (when viewed from the front), but an ideal restoration project for someone with the skills to add two pieces of wood to the sides. Very structurally sturdy, still plenty of life left in this gorgeous miniature chest.
