Antique Chest of Drawers, Fine Chippendale Serpentine Chest, Original Brasses
Essex County, Massachusetts, Possibly Salem, circa 1780-1795
Exceptional mahogany, mahogany veneer and eastern white pine


Antique Chest of Drawers, Fine Chippendale Serpentine Chest, Original Brasses
Essex County, Massachusetts, Possibly Salem, circa 1780-1795
Exceptional mahogany, mahogany veneer and eastern white pine, entire view

Federal inlaid mahogany serpentine front chest of drawers from the Salem area, having
a rectangular top featuring thumbnail molded front and sides slightly overhanging the
case; shaped front and canted corners above the conforming case of four long drawers
having lightwood inlaid stringing, each retaining original brasses; the whole on molded
base raised on conforming string inlaid C-shaped canted bracket feet…a continuum of
the case and top corners.

This popular English form was well received and interpreted by Essex County cabinet
makers. The distinctive pointed/chamfered corners were particularly favored and
expressed by the Salem school. Elijah and Jacob Sanderson formed a collective that
produced and shipped furniture to the south and beyond. This form was very popular in
post-revolutionary Charleston; the Salem group produced many fine examples for that
port. The paneled back was widely employed by English and Southern makers, rarely in
New England. It is supposed that the Sanderson’s, et al, may have used this method
when building venture cargo. We feel that the present example is one made for that
market and perhaps not delivered.
