Georgian chest on chest

georgian case render.jpg

Another period piece that I spotted on the 1stdibs.com web site. This is a Georgian chest on chest with a pull-put secretary, made in England in about 1780. The principal wood is oak; I used images from the original for the textures in the model. It's fully detailed, so the secretary can be moved in and out and the drawers--even the little ones in the secretary--can be opened and shut. I used Shaderlight for the render.
Enjoy.

Really nice! and I love how you did the texture and how it all came out. Is the lighting an effect of the original photo or added spot lights in the render?

Thanks, gents.
For the render, I placed spotlights at several places to try to illuminate the gallery and the crown molding, and to light up the lower portion of the case lest it be hidden in shadow. I also had to dial back the settings for the textures; I made them too reflective at first. The light still looks a little hot on the top of the case, but I'm not sure I want to fiddle with the render any more.

L i am: I'm not sure about the masterful part, but I'm pretty satisfied with the model.
Nlipovac: When I saw the listing for the original, I imagined that it was meant for a gentleman who lived in rented rooms, like Sherlock Holmes on Baker Street, and needed both a secretary and a dresser. The piece also appears to be more utilitarian than fancy-schmancy. It's made of oak, rather than mahogany, and except for the molding details on the upper case, it's pretty plain. And after nearly 200 years of use, it looks pretty banged up.

Sometimes!?, eye meets with something that makes it cheerful and heart responds to it, most of the time for me it is a design of a chair that make that impression on me, but this time it was this piece. :-)
I do like what you design and post here but this one is just a bit over them. :thumb:
