American Federal Chest of Drawers, c. 1815
44" wide x 23.5" deep x 42.75" high
Philadelphia Federal Chest of Drawers in Mahogany, American, circa 1815. Full column with well articulated carvings, including capitals and feet. Original wood knobs, banded drawer fronts and working locks. Book matched crotch mahogany veneer over poplar. We replaced and repaired missing or damaged veneers. Re-glued all loose joints, made drawers operable by re-building drawer rails when necessary. Original varnish finish has been preserved by using amalgamator to melt back top coats of old dark varnish and alligator surface. Chest was then finished with a light French polish and hard wax. It is now in excellent condition. We are very careful in our restoration to maintain the original integrity of the antiques and to retain the warmth, depth and age of the mahogany. (we never use contemporary finishing materials like lacquer) The wooden knobs were original to the chest. All drawers have original escutcheon key hole brasses, and locks. All elements are original, feet columns etc.
