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.
(Dimensions: H: 89”; Upper case: W: 35.75”; D: 17.75”; Lower case; W: 38.5”; D: 19”.)
