Newport Slipper-Foot Lowboy 
mahogany, 34"w, 30"h, 22"d  currently available 

The Newport slipper-foot lowboy is a gem of Newport furniture design, and another example of elegance with the restrained use of ornament. This early Townsend design has four graceful slipper feet and an incised Newport shell with flat-center rosette. The refined lines are capped with a thin overhanging top. It is replicated from the original in the Doris Duke Collection at the Whitehorne House Museum under an agreement with the Newport Restoration foundation.

Like other Newport lowboys, the case and drawers are of fully hand-dovetailed construction. As with all pieces by Jeffrey Greene, the Newport shell is carved totally by hand in the manner of the original.
