Measurement: Height: 46"; width: 34.5"; depth: 17.25"

Material: Northeastern white pine, wrought iron hardware

piercings that do not entirely penetrate drawer fronts suggest that small brass pulls were
likely added before the wonderful current blacksmith-made hardware probably dating to
circa 1800. Top lip of bottom drawer displays losses.

original natural surface, and featuring unique hand wrought iron hardware. The lift top
with applied moldings above a deep chest above two working drawers; the whole on
molded base raised on exceptionally tall [cyma recta profile] feet, each with small cusp.

Joined Chest with Drawer, Pilgrim Century, Historic Surface, Massachusetts
Probably Dedham or Medfield
Date/Period: 1675-1688


Joined Chest with Drawer, Pilgrim Century, Historic Surface, Massachusetts Probably Dedham or Medfield, entire view

Measurement: Height: 26.5: depth: 19.25; width: 43.75"

Material: Oak and pine

Condition: Original condition as descended, commensurate with age and use. As is
generally encountered the snipe hinge piercings are naturally worn/enlarged from use;
both hinges are original. The lid displays wear (wood loss) worn smooth by handling
and lock use at center of front edge as depicted. The proper left front corner of lid
displays a small very old patch that measures 1 by 3-inches. The patch really doesn’t
distract. Traces of very early thinning soft, mellow gray paint over original surface
especially in carving recesses are extant. The chest displays great color and
patina…never messed with. We invite you to call or email David to discuss this chest:
978.597.8084 or drh@aaawt.com

Additional Information: Joined chest, a survivor. Molded top projecting over the joined
case featuring three molded and chamfered recessed front panels; the sides and back
with two panels each. The rails, stiles and muntins are channel molded as is the side-
hung drawer face retaining original turned pulls. The rived drawer bottom is tapered
along the front edge and fits into a narrow grove within the inside of drawer front. The
drawer sides are fastened with two nails, each countersunk above and below the slide.
These and other construction techniques are assigned to Dedham and Medfield shop
traditions. See Winterthur Portfolio 13, edited by Ian Quimby; Style and Structure in the
Joinery of Dedham and Medfield, Massachusetts, 1635-1685
by Robert Blair St.
George, pp. 1 – 46. The author attributes the joinery to the Thurston family shops; this
chest possibly by Thomas Thurston (b. 1640, d. 1688). See page 14, figure 14 for side
view drawer detail.
