Rare Matching Queen Anne Bonnet-Top High Chest and Dressing Table with Matching Carved Shells

Both retain their original cast pierced brass and bail handles, central finial and drop pendants. The varnish finish of both cases has mellowed to a warm patina.
Among a very few known surviving sets, this Connecticut Bonnet-Top High Chest and Dressing Table have features that make them stand alone, notably the carving of the fans, the applied molding that conforms to the carved drawer of the high chest, and the stepped-in waist molding. Both pieces have survived in a wonderful state of preservation. Provenance: Descended through a prominent New England Family.
