Large Antique Scotch Chest of Drawers

Large Antique Scotch Chest of Drawers

A large antique Victorian Scotch chest of drawers: two small drawers over three large drawers with a wide concealed drawer at the very top. Standing on a deep shaped plinth with tall turned tulip feet. The drawers have original turned knobs and cock beading. There are four scroll corbels on the front with carving.

When we purchased this big chest of drawers, it had had over a hundred years of use and the drawers and drawer slides in the cabinet were very very worn, making the drawers difficult to open and close. This also meant the drawer fronts sat tilted back by quite an amount to the cabinet. We have spent a lot of time restoring to ensure the drawers will work as they should for many years to come. We gave the chest considerable TLC before thorough preparation for painting, though given its age, it obviously shows signs of daily use.

Multi-coat paint finish:

  • Thorough preparation
  • Professionally spray painted
  • two coats of shellac based primer. 
  • one coat water based acrylic resin undercoat in dark tones.
  • two coats of water based acrylic satin in Hague Blue.

We picked out the original escutcheons in gold paint.
