R.J. Horner Faux Bamboo Side Lock Chest

Description: Stunning faux bamboo Victorian tall chest with side lock attributed to R.J. Horner, NYC. The beveled mirror has a beehive finial on each side with a spindled top. The five drawers all have the original bar pulls. The drawers, mirror, and side panels are all framed by quarter round faux bamboo moldings typical of the R.J. Horner firm. The side bar on the right side was originally used to lock the drawers to keep the maid from getting into the gentleman's belongings when he was absent. The lock is still intact but we don't have the original key. I have included an old key to put in the lock for "looks." This is a fine example of this genre of furniture in prime original condition!

Circa: 1880
Dimensions: 74.5"H x 31"W x 18.5"D
Finish: Excellent original finish and patina
Price: $8250.00
