A lovely bonnet-top chest-on-chest of fine proportion, in two parts. The upper section
with full bonnet, molded scrolled crest surmounted by three turned finials, above a short
fan-carved drawer flanked by drawers and above four long graduated drawers; the
lower section with four long graduated drawers [drawers are thumb molded] over a
molded base, raised on shaped bracket feet. This chest is restored, a decorator’s
dream. (Height: 79”) Call or email Dave: email@example.com
Top case features five overhanging thumb-molded drawers; bottom case with three similar drawers; the whole raised on molded and applied bracket base.
(Top case: 37.25 18.25”, bottom case: 39.5 by 19.75”)
A choice bonnet-top example having exemplary drawer organization and proportion; bonnet, waist and base moldings are beautifully shaped and unify the design.
(Intact original condition; H 80"; upper case W 36"; lower case W 38")
Rosettes, spiral columns, steep bonnet, applied carved center-plinth ornament above elaborate double-sunburst carved top center drawer blending Colchester and Wethersfield production features.
And yes, unusual with three-drawer base; base may have been reconfigured during the nineteenth century. The base is very old; underside displays great color and patina. This chest arrived at ad deadline; we hope to thoroughly inspect and make conclusions before publication so that we may enthusiastically discuss, sharing informed conclusions at time of publication. (Other minor imperfections easily remedied; old lip repairs to drawers; metal band loosely inserted within tympanum supporting loose roof-boards. Period brasses within original borings; H: 78.5", top case W: 38", top case D: 18.25", bottom case W: 39.25", bottom case D: 18.5")
