Federal Bowfront Chest, Portsmouth, 12 Panel, Judkins and Senter, Branded “C. Blunt”
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, circa 1800-1815
The spurred French feet & inlay across the front of skirt may be attributed to Portsmouth


Federal Bowfront Chest, Portsmouth, 12 Panel, Judkins and Senter, Branded “C. Blunt”
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, circa 1800-1815
The spurred French feet & inlay across the front of skirt may be attributed to Portsmouth, entire view

We note that Thomas Hardiman Jr. discussed in his article, “Veneered Furniture of Cumston and
Buckminster, Saco Maine”, The magazine Antiques, vol.159., no. 5 (May 2001), pp.754-61, that Saco,
Maine chests do not share these features.

The brand refers to the chest’s one-time owner, Charles Blunt (1768-1823), who was a prominent ship’s
captain and shipowner living on Pleasant Street in Portsmouth. For additional information regarding
Blunt please refer to Portsmouth Furniture – Masterworks from the New Hampshire Seacoast by Brock
Jobe, page 427. This chest is closely related to two very similar chests illustrated in Professor Jobe’s
book, pp. 114-5, no. 11 and 11A.
This chest is a fine example of the Portsmouth twelve-panel design and was likely made by Portsmouth
cabinetmakers… Judkins and Senter. The exuberant feathered birch panels are centered by cross-
banded rosewood with a vertical line of light/dark inlay bisecting the center panels just below the ivory
octagonal key escutcheons. The case is constructed of birch and is in excellent condition with no repairs
to the exceptional French feet.
(Height; 38”, width: 40”, depth: 17”)

19th centuries. See, Brock Jobe, Gary R. Sullivan, and Jack O'Brien,Harbor & Home: Furniture of Southeastern
