Originally built in January 1902, this machinist chest is signed and dated on the inside by the maker - Joseph Rudolph Geschel (1868-1944) of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
It has been lovingly restored through hours of meticulous craftsmanship that elevate it from a utilitarian cabinet in a machine shop to a piece of fine furniture at home in any setting.
The two-tone exterior features Annie Sloan chalk paint burnished to a silky smooth finish.The rich patina of the drawer boxes and cup pulls is carefully preserved with multiple coats of clear lacquer.The stained American Black Walnut feet and molding provide a subtle yet elegant accent.
This one-of-a-kind centenarian is timelessly beautiful and ready for another century of life as a family heirloom.
It measures 20-1/2" Wide by 18-3/4" Deep by 68-1/2" Tall.
