Its appropriately replace brass hardware dress the old, mellow varnished surface. A nicely developed cornice is complementary to the waist moldings.

The well developed legs combined with a graceful cyma shaped apron provides a silhouette of symmetry.

A upwards vertical movement is accentuated by the central arch of the apron and the tall graceful legs. This Fine Quality Highboy stands in very good condition which is proportionate to its stature.
