Chest with drawer


Not on view

Inscribed “EL 1705,” this is one of six similar joined chests from Connecticut bearing dates between 1704 and 1706. The painted decoration on its three front panels echoes the carving of the “sunflower” chests of Hartford County, which it also resembles in its form and construction.
