Chippendale Chest of Drawers
This fine American Chippendale chest of drawers is made of walnut with white cedar as the secondary wood. It retains an old mellow finish with high bracket feet and a deep overhang for clearing chair-rail molding in a formal home. The backboards are secured with rosehead nails. The pulls are later replacements but placed in the original holes. All else is original with the exception of one corner glue block. Ca. 1780. Mid-Atlantic states origin.
