Antique Victorian Treen Spice Chest of Six Drawers
A lovely example of a small treen Victorian spice chest featuring six drawers with their original labels. A well made sturdy piece which is in excellent condition and would look fabulous as part of a kitchenalia collection or in daily use.
The chest has drawers for Ginger, Nutmegs, Cloves, Cinnamon, Pepper and Allspice. The chest is in excellent overall condition with a lovely colour. All six drawer knobs are also black although a few differ in size so they may have been replaced at some point. However, it is not obvious whether this has occurred as all the original fittings are in place.
The Allspice label has been knocked previously and is visibly dented a little. A replacement gold nail has been used for the repair. However, this damage is minimal and does little to detract from the chest overall. The top of the original hook for hanging this on the wall has also broken away,
Height, 17cm; Width, 19.5cm; Depth, 8cm.
