19th Century Chest of Drawers

I have an oak chest of drawers, early 19thC I think, which I wish to dispose of.   I was planning to put it into auction but then I thought maybe put on school website as it might suit someone. It has done good service for us, initially as a nursery piece, but as it is quite compact with good capacity it could be put to a lot of uses.

It is in very good condition and is 36 inches wide, 20 inches deep and 38 inches high.

Not looking for a lot for it, maybe £300?  (Quite a lot less than I paid a few years ago!)


One bedroomed cottage, near Yattendon, available

One bedroomed cottage, near Yattendon, available in return for 15 hours work a week, housekeeping and some childcare.  Bills not included.  Would suit a couple.  References essential.  Tel: 07816 289623 (Marlston House parent)
