mahogany, 32½"h, 37"w, 21½"d
The Boston serpentine-front chest is a stately and impressive chest of drawers, embodying all the ideals of the Chippendale era. The serpentine treatment of the front reveals the stunning grain pattern of mahogany. This design also features blocked ends, bold brasses, and powerful Boston-style ball and claw feet.
The drawer fronts are cut from solid mahogany in excess of 2 inches in thickness. They are taken from one plank to assure uniform appearance and graining throughout.
