High chest of drawers
Not on view
This high chest is part of a small group of case pieces from the Windsor area bearing dates in the 1730s. The exaggerated knees and flat feet parody the elegance of the cabriole legs on chests from urban Massachusetts, while the playful painted birds and beasts are a provincial interpretation of the work of Boston japanners.
