Traditionally, chests of drawers comprise a large ‘box’ with a series of smaller boxes sliding into it. Here the drawers themselves form the exterior and they run within a skeletal frame. All the structural elements are made of very fine English cherrywood, and the drawer linings of scented Lebanon cedar. The cherrywood drawers are veneered inside and out with magnificent burr elm, which is pierced to form the recesses behind the bronze handles and to reveal their construction. The proportions of the eighteen drawers are three times the width of the narrow ones, and the bottom.
