Queen Anne Walnut Bonnet-top Highboy


Queen Anne Walnut Bonnet-top Highboy

Elegant closed and molded, broken arch bonnet-top; above upper and lower cases of thumb molded drawers; top case features a tier of three short drawers above four graduated long drawer; the lower case with single long drawer over the center reverse blocked (concave carved) drawer flanked by a pair of short drawers. The three-part skirt features flat-headed arches; the whole raised on unusually graceful cabriole legs terminating on large pad feet. This high chest retains original small brasses typical of the style. Overall excellent condition consistent with age and use; as is typical, the finials are old replacements. Drawer linings to a single long drawer restored; very small patch to rear lower back corner of top case; a very tight [closed] fissure to side knee of proper left rear leg that in no-way compromises the integrity or aesthetic. A fine New England highboy offered at a most reasonable price that was sold by Joe Kindig III in 1978. (Correspondence available to purchaser)
