Mahogany Serpentine Chest of Drawers

A choice Chippendale period chest of drawers having a beautifully grained and molded serpentine top over a conforming case of four graduated drawers mounted with important brasses and raised on bold ogee bracket feet. Boston, circa 1775

A wonderful example of Massachusetts cabinet making. This classic Boston design is in a fine state of originality and retains a beautiful patina. The over-hanging top, large brasses, and outsized ogee feet combine to make this a text book example of an 18th century Boston chest.

The chest has no repairs although the 18th century brasses are not the first set. The chest measures 33 1/2 inches high, top 40 1/2 inches wide, Case 37 1/4 inches wide, 22 1/2 inches deep.
