Goddard Bonnet-Top Highboy
with four ball & claw feet and shell
mahogany, 86"h, 40"w, 23"d  currently available

This highboy features the carved detail indicative of the Goddard family workshop. It stands on four open-talon ball and claw feet and has carved knees with a unique and handsome foliate pattern. The incised shell has a scallop shell center not seen on other Newport pieces. The open pediment has a central fluted finial on a fluted plinth.

Like all Newport highboys, this example has dovetailed upper and lower case construction and the drawers are fully hand-dovetailed as well. Masterfully  proportioned and carved, the Goddard bonnet-top has a striking presence.
