Queen Anne Highboy
This fine early “country-made” Queen Ann transitional flat top highboy boasts a two over four drawer configuration in the top section, atop a base that has a one over three drawer configuration, resting on delicate capriole legs with detailed slipper feet. New England, most likely northern coastal Massachusetts, circa 1720-40. Flame grain maple with white pine as the secondary wood,. with period, and possibly original, brasses. In a desirable diminutive size, measuring 64" tall by 20" deep by 36" wide. Condition: minor early repair to waist molding, replaced acorn drops, and a few age cracks, all consistent with age.
