Chest on Chest, Queen Anne, Unusually Small Example, Carved
Hartford Connecticut Area, possibly Suffield Date/Period: 1770-1785
Measurement: Height: 72"; top case: 32.75" x 17.5"; bottom case: 34.25" x 18.5"
Material: Cherry with pine and poplar secondary woods
Provenance: John Walton 1981, Thomas Kugelman, Peter Eaton 1985, Private
Collection to AAAWT 2022.
Condition: Brasses are period but not first set, several splits to drawer lips now
repaired; one knee return possibly restored. When found by John Walton the top and
bottom were separated; lower case had a top applied; top case had casters. When the
cases are compared it is evident that top and bottom belonged together; obvious
consistency in construction, tool marks [width and depth of plane marks] and
joinery…Walton reunited the pieces.
The lowest drawer bottom in bottom case is replaced, drawer sides repaired; some
expected repairs to lower drawer bottom sides…some drawer runners replaced or
reversed. (All trivial)
Additional Information: An unusually small Queen Anne chest featuring shell and
floral carved drawer fronts, shaped skirt, and cabriole legs
Chippendale Chest-on-Chest, Claw & Ball Feet, Fan Carved, New England Date/Period: 1760-1780
Additional Information: Crown molding over a fan-carved drawer flanked by two
stacked short drawers each side…above four graduated drawers; lower case with three
graduated drawers. The lower fan-carved drawer simulates three short drawers.
Diminutive Chest-on-Chest, New England, Original Surface & Brass Hardware Date/Period: Circa 1800
Measurement: Height: 64.25"; top case: 35.5" x 17"; bottom case: 37" x 18"
Material: Cherry, white pine secondary wood
Condition: Very good with only typical expected vestiges of time; two very small lip
repairs at drawer corners; sliver of wood detached from rear on base molding which we
will have professionally restored. One rear foot displays a shrinkage crack. For some
unknown reason, an additional pair of pulls were added to bottom drawer which were
removed, thankfully the original brass hardware was not compromised…else fine.
Additional Information: Crown molding above four overhanging thumb molded
graduated drawers; lower case with waist moldings containing three graduated drawers
is raised on applied bracket base joining apron featuring a central demilune drop finial.
The cherrywood has developed a wonderful color and surface…the original brass
hardware is a bonus.
