C41D Gerstner® Classic Chest in American Cherry with solid polished brass hardware and brown felt lined drawers. This chest has a long history that dates back to the 1910’s. Gerstner has been making a top opening, seven drawer ‘41 series’ chest since 1918. Originally this Classic Chest was designed to protect the delicate, precision instruments of tool & die workers from damage and the elements.Today, this same high-quality tongue and groove constructed chest with its classic American styling can protect your valuables while being a beautiful focal point in any room’s décor. Now is your opportunity to own a true heirloom that is sure to be treasured for years to come.Our 105 year history of Gerstner’s legendary craftsmanship proudly continues in this chest with tongue and groove construction which provides strength, durability and visual appeal. Each part is meticulously hand fitted for the most exacting fit possible. Hardwoods naturally retain some moisture and can expand and contract slightly with seasonal temperatures – the Gerstner craftsmen have taken this into consideration and all parts are fitted accordingly to allow for this natural occurrence while taking into account regional & seasonal differences that may affect this process as well. The top compartment and all seven drawers are felt lined to provide extra protection for your possessions. The front panel is fitted with a sliding hinge so that it may be stowed beneath the bottom drawer on the open position. In the closed position, the front panel covers the drawers and can be locked to provide total security. When paired with the CB42B Classic Base, you can increase your overall storage capacity without taking up much more surface workspace (base sold separately). Chest comes with 2 keys.American Cherry has a light to medium fruitwood stain. Ours is a very unique color and does not match what people usually perceive to be a "cherry" furniture color. We only use cherry that is plain sawn, which is very stable and produces a wonderful flowing, curvy grain pattern. Cherry has small imperfections known as "pitting" that occurs naturally. At Gerstner these imperfections are kept to a minimum, but they sometimes can appear as very small knots, or a series of darker swirls and spots. Our American Cherry stain is light enough to highlight and accentuate the unique grain pattern. Smaller pieces of cherry will not show the flowing pattern as well as larger pieces. Your new cherry chest will darken over time.Every Gerstner USA built chest has a hand rubbed lacquer finish. All chests go through 3 final finishing stages. At each stage the lacquer finish is hand rubbed to give a lasting beauty and protection to the selected hardwoods. Cherry chests have a hand applied stain to insure an even finish.Dimensions are listed in order from top drawer down.
