AMERICAN CHIPPENDALE MAPLE CHEST OF DRAWERS OVER OGEE FEET. New England States, circa 1790; with fluted corner columns Item # 103CBD11A.A product of the New England States from the last quarter of the eighteenth-century, this very attractive Chippendale chest of drawers features solid figured maple primary woods finished in a glowing shellac. The top is crafted using two solid maple planks surrounded by an applied thumb-molded rim projecting over four graduated drawers flanked by fluted columns. Each drawer is set with bail-pull brasses and the faces of the drawers are executed in a gorgeous tiger-maple solid plank with dramatic bands of grain striation. The drawers operate beautifully with a smooth action over oak runners on the inside of the chest; all drawers are dovetailed in the typical manner around the four corners with drawer bottoms that are deeply chamfered and set under the runners; all drawer secondary woods are poplar. Each drawer is separated by a generous solid maple drawer blade that tenons into either side of the chest and fronts a full depth poplar dust board. Interestingly, the underside of the chest is finished in a piece of solid oak that is locked into the sides with dovetails. The chest rests over ogival bracket feet with an ever-so-slight taper and a wonderful flare in the shoe. A dramatic chest to look at, it is particularly attractive for its glowing patina and delicate feet. Measurements: 37 3/4" H x 30 3/8" D x 37 W.
