A Period Kas in Original Dry Surface, Connecticut
Likely Greenwich Connecticut, circa 1780
Cherrywood - SOLD

An outstanding survivor inspired by examples made across the sound on Long Island
Kasten made in Connecticut are of Dutch form yet combine English and Long Island details such as platform feet, no center stile; door construction, wrought iron “H” hinges, door construction and two tiers of drawers. The drawer fronts feature astragal and cavetto moldings; dental molding at base of cornice is an unusual feature. The construction of paneling ornamenting front stiles is found only on coastal Connecticut kasten; case displays four narrow recessed panels made as openings then closed by a single board attached from behind, then finished with applied moldings. This wardrobe contains interior shelves and a small side hung drawer which is a later addition; the interior is wallpapered. The historic surface is fabulous, feet are original; brass hardware is period but not the first; blocking within cornice has bee refreshed with all else original; any imperfections are minor, expected and consistent with age and use.
This relatively small example can easily be delivered anywhere in the States. (Height: 79.25"; case width: 55.75"; crown width: 69.25"; case depth: 17.25"; crown depth: 24.5")
