Lowboy, Queen Anne Dressing Table, Typical of Downtown Philadelphia Shops
Date/Period: Circa 1735-1750

Measurement: Height: 28.25"; width: 33"; depth: 20.5"

Material: Mahogany, cedar, and poplar secondary woods

Condition: Very good, although not original the brasses are appropriate

Additional Information: This form is among the most desirable designs of the period
executed by the best cabinet shop(s) working in Philadelphia during the second quarter
of the eighteenth century.

Most Philadelphia production was of walnut; imported mahogany was expensive and
exotic, a beautiful wood producing a slightly more formal presence. The drawers
[secondary wood] retain their original yellow wash, typical of the downtown Philadelphia
cabinet shops.

Overhung molded top over a single long drawer over two short drawers flanking the
smaller drawer at center. The front and side scalloped skirts are of a most successful
design displaying restrained, elegant profiles [cutouts]; the center profile of front skirt
with its central drop rises to just below the center drawer producing a lightness to the
piece. The whole raised on elegant cabriole legs resting on short-lived, faceted, or
stockinged feet fashionable during the 1730-40 period. The style of feet was in
transition…after Spanish [brush] feet, preceding the more usual trifid or drake feet.

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.
