Blocked End Serpentine Chest

Third quarter, 18th century

Walnut, white pine

35″ W (case), 39.5″ (overall); 33″ H; 21.25″ D


This chest is all about curves. The fabulous blocked ends flows smoothly into expressive serpentine curves. The case is small at 35″ with an excellent overhang of almost 5″. The piece terminates in robust ball and claw feet with a central drop pendant. What catches the eye the most about this piece is its use of first-rate mahogany along with gigantic period 18th century brasses.
