If you're looking for something very special for that very special someone, then you're in luck. We're happy to offer these His and Hers oyster-veneered chests complete with inlaid hearts on the tops.

It is difficult enough to find a single example of these 17th Century gems, especially in such a significant size. So we were certainly thrilled to come across a pair. Further adding to their rarity is the maker's label which is found inside one of the drawers:

Hugh Granger was a London maker operating at the "Carved Angell" at the end of the 17th Century. Examples of his work may be found in Christopher Gilbert's Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture Makers, 1700-1840.
