AMERICAN CHIPPENDALE CHERRYWOOD TALL CHEST OF DRAWERS
Pennsylvania circa 1790-1810
Item # 804TUY21Z 


Remaining in excellent original condition, this fine tall chest of drawers shows the transition of styles from the earlier Chippendale tradition into the more edgy and refined Federal style.  Notable first in the hollywood stringer inlays with the inverted spandrels framing each of the drawers, the stamped brasses are also in the newer taste and almost certainly imported from England.  Each backplate is original and complete with the angular conforming bail pulls, these decorated with a beehive surrounded by twelve blooming roses over the words “Nothing Without Labor” in block lettering.  The drawers are beautifully dovetailed with mostly pine secondary woods, a few drawers with yellow poplar, the deeply chamfered bottoms set in grooves on either side in the typical Pennsylvania manner.  Flanking these are a pair of fluted columns with Doric capitals.  The deep projecting cove molding is matched by the powerful ogival curvature of the oversized bracket feet with their integral notched spurs.  It is a very fine piece with boldness and great presence.

Measurements:  47 W x 24 D x 64 5/8 H
