Likely Eastern Connecticut

Tall Chest on Frame with Drawer, Chippendale, Carved, Original Paint & Hardware

The dovetail joined case [top and bottom] displays an elaborate crown molding above three short drawers, the center drawer features a classic Connecticut spiral carved fan contained within a conforming linked crescent border cut with gouge chisel blade… this ornamentation is within a narrow sweep gouge blade created border. The case contains five graduated thumb-molded drawers and is raised on a base having a single drawer above the ambitiously shaped apron. The center drop with incised border is carved as are the roundels featuring pinwheel carving; side cutouts relate to robust double toe feet. The drawer bottoms are of “boxed-out” construction and inside out dovetail joinery… both styles and wood species employed speak to Eastern Connecticut shop traditions. The magnificent wide backboards displaying great color are intact.
