FEDERAL BIRCH & BIRD’S-EYE MAPLE CHEST
Upon first observing this Federal chest, special attention should be given towards its precisely balanced cabinetry. This Sheraton birch and bird’s-eye maple chest of drawers is totally refurbished and is in a very good state of preservation. The Rectangular top has a front reeded edge having cookie or turret corners. A Conforming Case is Fitted With four cock beaded long drawers centered by outstanding bold bird’s-eye maple fronts banded in mahogany. They are flanked by and supported with high reeded and turned legs terminating to balls. Below the drawers is a dramatically shaped front and side apron. The serene character of this Fine Quality Chest exemplifies North Shore furniture during the Federal Period. The chest’s ample proportions and its harmonious grouping of elements would be a distinctive addition to ones collection.
