A late 19th Century Double Wellington chest of 18 Drawers
With 9 drawers per column, instead of the usual 7, this arrangement is rarely seen in a single unit, and to have this replicated with a second column is very seldom seen.
Each draw is finished with a stunning triple chamfered edge , which flattens to the external edge, ready for securing via the swinging arm.
The drawers are also graduated after each three layers, the depth Increasing as you move down the cabinet.
The locking mechanism, reminiscent of Hobbs and Co, uses one key between the two locks, with one mechanism rotating clockwise, the other anti-clockwise, and can lock without the key, by simply pushing the arm against the female side of the lock.
