Walnut Chippendale Chest of Drawers
A masterpiece example of the chest of drawers form. This chest has a molded top with notched corners, a two-over-three drawer arrangement with nicely figured wood and Chippendale brass with fluted corner columns over a base molding and nice ogee feet. Each feature of this chest is considered superlative. Almost the exact chest in design and proportions was featured on the cover of Albert Sack's, Fine Points of Furniture: Early American.
