The chest is highlighted with line inlay around the top, drawer faces, and quarter columns. Condition: Fine condition, minor repairs, original brass (see full condition report). Condition Report Chippendale Four Drawer Chest Connecticut, ca. 1770. Cherry, pine and poplar secondary. This chest is in a fine and remarkable state of preservation. There is restoration to the bottom portions of the drawer sides which have been built up due to excessive wear. It appears that shrinkage cracks on the side of the case have been filled. Casters from a later date were removed from the bottom of the feet. The chest retains a 19th c. varnish finish. The bail brasses appear to be original.
