A small mahogany veneer chest of drawers, with a first generation (c.1890s), bakelite museum label attached stating it was John Wesley's.
The chest of drawers is of good quality but plain. Perhaps it was acquired to furnish Wesley's new house in 1779 when he moved in. It certainly looks similar in age and overall plain style to other furniture in the house, notably the mahogany bookcase in Wesley's Study. All original furniture pieces in John Wesley's House recall John Wesley's comment about Wesley's Chapel (then the 'New' Chapel) in 1778: "The Chapel is neat but not fine."
The chest of drawers is seen in Wesley's bedroom; the bedstead is a modern reproduction.
