Elegant closed and molded, broken arch bonnet-top; above upper and lower cases of thumb molded drawers; top case features a tier of three short drawers above four graduated long drawer; the lower case with single long drawer over the center reverse blocked (concave carved) drawer flanked by a pair of short drawers. The three-part skirt features flat-headed arches; the whole raised on unusually graceful cabriole legs terminating on large pad feet. This high chest retains original small brasses typical of the style. Overall excellent condition consistent with age and use; as is typical, the finials are old replacements. Drawer linings to a single long drawer restored; very small patch to rear lower back corner of top case; a very tight [closed] fissure to side knee of proper left rear leg that in no-way compromises the integrity or aesthetic. A fine New England highboy offered at a most reasonable price that was sold by Joe Kindig III in 1978. (Correspondence available to purchaser)

18th Century Philadelphia
Queen Anne Dressing Table, Lowboy
Pennsylvania, circa 1730-1750
Walnut, white cedar and poplar


18th Century Philadelphia Queen Anne Dressing Table, Lowboy
Pennsylvania, circa 1730-1750
Walnut, white cedar and poplar, entire view 1

A rare and lovely dressing table related to a yet to be conclusively identified group of
high chests and dressing tables by “The Elusive Joiner”, an accomplished craftsman
highly skilled in the development of scale and form. The beautifully proportioned case
features the graceful integration of transitional William and Mary (early Baroque) design
elements that speak to its successful design and early date. The [ 33.75 by 20 7/8-inch]
molded overhanging top with notched front corners is over the (17 7/8 by 29 7/8-inch]
case containing three short drawers, each retaining original brass hardware. The
rhythmic treatment of the skirt with its high central Persian arch is common to this small
group of furniture; an incised bead conforms to the front and masterful side profiles. The
front and side apron profiles transition seamlessly as a continuum of the inside lines of
the sawn cabriole legs resting on outstanding ankleted Spanish feet.

See: The American Philosophical Society, APS Library Bulletin, Winter 2001;
Philadelphia Cabinetmaking and Commerce, 1718-1753: The Account Book of John
Head, Joiner
by Jay Robert Stiefel. Figure 18, a high chest on cabriole legs with
Spanish feet and with identical apron is pictured and discussed. Figures 26, 27, and 28
depict dressing tables from this group owned by Dr. Richard Mones, Private Collections
and Skip Chalfant; also, a high chest in the Stenton Mansion Museum, Philadelphia
country home of James Logan, colonial Mayor of Philadelphia and Chief Justice of
the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Antique Highboy, Bonnet Top Queen Anne, Carved Cherrywood Connecticutt , Circa 1770
Cherry, white pine and poplar


Antique Queen Anne Bonnet Top Highboy, Connecticut, Circa 1770, angle view

This successful highboy of inspired design was created by an ambitious and highly gifted rural Connecticut Valley cabinet maker. The steeply pitched cyma scrolled pediment with enclosed bonnet is ornamented with vigorous moldings featuring carved rosette termini. The scrolling of the tympanum board creates a relationship between positive and negative space, and centers the plinth with flame carved finial. The drawer organization and graduation is enhanced by superbly carved center drawers, featuring an aster at top and a shell in the lower case. The unusually tall cabriole legs, cyma scrolled apron with drop pendants, create a powerful vertical presence. The combination of design, condition, appealing old color, and carved embellishments work in concert creating a successful expression. The backboard is signed S B 1770 in original ‘bricking’. The highboy remains in remarkably intact condition with only minor repairs; period brasses are installed within original borings.
