Rare and Unique Chippendale Five Drawer Chest
Probably Connecticut, ca. 1780-1795
Cherry, tulip poplar, secondary wood
Condition: One minor “cabinet-makers” mistake, refinished, retains the original oval brass.
One of the more rare and unusual features of the chest are the carved out drawerfaces revealing a lipped edge. The serpentine front with conforming molded edge top and base molding is supported by carved block-form feet. The chest is inscribed on the backboards, William Page, Rockford, Ill, perhaps an owner of the chest.
