Probably Litchfield, Connecticut
Cherry, pine and poplar secondary woods
This rare, perhaps made-to-order cabinet has a carved astragal edge top with under moldings above a case with two-panel doors with applied drawer facings, opening to a cabinet shelf flanked by fluted quarter columns. The case is supported by carved ball and claw feet with carved shaped knee returns and is further highlighted with applied moldings to the back edge of the case. The piece has diagonal corner braces supporting the feet and cleats holding the top to the case which are typical construction features found in Litchfield County.
Provenance: Bernard and S. Dean Levy, New York, 1995
