A perfectly proportioned miniature chest attributed to Ince and Mayhew. The miniature is of a style that thrived in the latter part of the 18th century, proving popular with nobility and the middle classes. I am not aware of another miniature chest thought to be by eminent makers.

The chest sits on four outswept feet below a line stringing of box and four ascending burr yew drawers each banded with a double box stringing, cross banded in tulip and retaining there original hand turned solid brass gilded knobs. The burr yew drawers are each dovetailed and fitted with mitred divides of a different layout, presumably for jewellery or collectables. The fiddle back satinwood sides retain there original gilt brass carrying handles.
The tulip, box and ebony banded, quarter veneered satinwood top, is centred by a burr yew oval, banded in tulip and a fine stringing of box and ebony.
Perfect original condition
