Greene · Newport
figured maple 65"h, 39"w, 21"d
Somewhere between a chest of drawers and a high chest, a chest-on-frame is a relatively rare form. This Newport version has a case of five graduated, full-width drawers atop a Newport slipper-foot frame. The scrolled base apron has a central pendant drop.
The base frame is of pegged mortise-and-tenon construction and the upper case and drawers are dovetailed. It is shown here in figured cherry, but it is equally attractive in maple (inset), mahogany, or walnut.
