This solid, custom mahogany tall chest of drawers is in the Chippendale style. This furniture form is generally referred to as a chest on chest and is comprised of 2 pieces. The top chest has a full bonnet with a gracefully arched pediment. There are three delicately turned and carved finials. The center finial has an old repair which is only visible upon extremely close examination. The top has 3 small drawers over 4 larger drawers. The top smaller center drawer has a lovely carved shell. The base cabinet has 4 drawers which graduate in size. All the drawers are hand dovetailed; have their original cast brass pulls and key escutcheons with working locks with a key. Notice the boldly carved ball and claw feet and the reeded quarter columns on the front corners. The finish is in excellent condition having a warm color and rich patina.
