Chest on Chest, Queen Anne, Unusually Small Example, Carved
Hartford Connecticut Area, possibly Suffield
Date/Period: 1770-1785


Chest on Chest, Queen Anne, Unusually Small Example, Carved Hartford Connecticut Area, possibly Suffield, entire view

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

Tall Chest on Frame with Drawer, Chippendale,
Antique Carved, Original Paint & Hardware
Likely Eastern Connecticut
Date/Period: 1775-1785


Tall Chest on Frame with Drawer, Chippendale, Antique Carved, Original Paint & Hardware Likely Eastern Connecticut, entire view

Measurement: Height: 62"; width: 38.5"; depth: 19.75"

Material: Tulip poplar primary wood, old growth white pine secondary

Condition: Missing a spur [return] that flanked drop on front base apron, all else original
and outstanding

Additional Information: 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.
