Museum Quality 19th Century Burlwood Two-Level Chest. The front is a beautiful zelkova burlwood and the sides are paulownia. The hidden parts are pine. Old burlwood chests are rare. In fact, this is only the second burlwood chest that we've ever had, and it is a fine example with a very rich grain. And to make an already rare piece truly unique and valuable, the doors are lined inside with 19th Century talisman prints, that are themselves rare. We could remove these and sell them separately, but they belong on this very special chest, where they've been keeping it safe for many years. There is a small section of the bottom interior shelf that has been replaced, something that you commonly see. 55h x 43.5w x 20.25d inches, 140h x 110.5w x 51.5d cm.
