Olympus chest of drawers
A stunning French Louis style chest of drawers by Olympus. This beautiful range was sold exclusively by Harrods throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
This whole unit has been deep cleaned with sugar water and sanded back, before being professionally prepared and hand painted. The whole chest of five drawers has been given two coats of primer and undercoat, before being given three coats of colour. Each layer of paint being sanded down before the next to give a smoother and more durable finish.
The two main colours used on this piece are a satin gloss rich black and deep mallard green, both colours bringing a nice regal feel to the whole piece, especially when paired with the gold detail work. These units are very nicely detailed, with carvings on top of the legs, around the top border, top corners and sides; the new gold colouring really making them stand out against the black.
The original glass top is also still with this piece that sits on top protecting the paintwork.
If you have any queries on this piece I would be more than happy to hear from you and answer any questions you may have.
