I am Selling a Victorian Mahogany Chiffonier / Sideboard - A Great Shabby Chic Project
Description - This is a lovely item dating from the Victorian era, which makes it over 120 years old. I bought it at an auction last month. It has a wonderful aged patina. As you will see from the photo`s the base has a bowed serpentine base. All the finials are intact. The glass to the mirror has an uneven surface and shows signs of "mottling " both signs of it being authentic and original to the piece.. For easy collection the two sections come apart. See the last photo
The base section has a secret drawer above 2 doors. Inside there is 1 x fixed shelf
I think this will make a great shabby chic project.
I do need to make you aware of the repairs & signs of age to the Chiffonier. The main points are as follows;
Top Mirrored back dish 1. the central carved feature is complete but needs re fixing. 2. The white specks you see are paint spots, they will easily come off with some fine wire wool.
Chiffonier Base. 1. There are some small chips to the edges. 2. Some of the beading is loose. 3. The locks and latches are intact but there is no key. 4. The base to the secret drawer needs some attention re the dovetail joints.
All of the above are do-able and once restored and painted this will be a charming and stunning piece of furniture.
Height 54 inches
Width 36 inches
