Hepplewhite Mahogany, Birch Inlaid Chest of Drawers, New Hampshire, circa 1815

About

This is an interesting chest with the full complement of inlays seen on the highly developed school of Portsmouth chests that usually have French feet. (See image below from Levy’s in search of excellence for one such chest). Our model is probably a little later with Sheraton reeded baluster legs. Interestingly, the cabinetmaker followed through with the introduction of a turned leg below a cross banded birch panel, adding design continuity. Nevertheless, the legs are absolutely correct to the chest and all the veneers show a shrinkage that only time gives. This piece is all original, in addition to the brasses. This chest leaves nothing out. Note the banded inlay along the top edge and above the skirt. Unlike most chests of this form, this chest employs a central drop panel of contrasting veneer and inlay, which is flanked by a shaped skirt working a serpentine curve into a sharp half round terminating into the inlaid panels above each leg. Lastly, the flame birch sides and top are solid and are of well-chosen quality. Sizes of this width with flame birch (even at that time) were a rarity. So, this is truly a wonderful chest. Measures: Height 41 in. Overall width 39 1/2 in., depth 19 in.
