High Chest of Drawers
There is no other Newport high chest with four clawand-ball feet with open talons and carving on all four knees. The design is a refinement of the Boston Queen Anne-style high chest: scrolls and shells in the skirt provide a sense of gracefulness and lift, while raised panels at the top harmonize with the shape of the hood. Note the “plum pudding” figure of the carefully chosen mahogany drawer fronts.
